At The Beginning Of A New Era 

Luther Luedtke, CLU's 
fifth president, stepped 
into office August 1 

By Charlie Flora 


Dr. Luther Luedtke sits on a couch inside 
the Student Union Building, talking away. 
He makes sure to pick his words carefully 
and to outline slowly his plan for California 
Lutheran University in the one hour desig- 
nated for this interview. Now the lime was 
up. He had to move on. 

But at some point amid all the talk of 
CLU, the university that appointed him 
president in May, Luedtke got inspired. So 
much, in fact, that he no longer felt the need 
for carefully chosen words. 

Before getting up to leave, he abandoned 
all the rehearsed dialogue and summarized 
what he wanted to say in one sentence. 

"I just can 't wait to get behind the steering 
wheel," said Luedtke, breaking out in a 
boyish grin. 

And it was with this excitement that 
Luedtke, an accomplished educator, author 
and scholar, officially got behind the steer- 
ing wheel as the new leader of CLU on Aug. 
1 , two weeks later.

Core 21, a new set of 
academic requirements, is 
put into effect this year 

By Kristin Butler 


After several months of preparation, Cali- 
fornia Lutheran University's General Edu- 
cation Committee will debut Core 21, its 
newest list of requirements for incoming 
freshmen and transfer students this fall. 

The program is designed to prepare stu- 
dents for the 21st century through four 
major areas of study that include: profi- 
ciency, perspectives, cultures and civiliza- 
tions and integrated studies. 

The first area of study, proficiency, is 
intended to ensure that students will be able 

to handle and understand upper-division 
course work. 

Students must show their competency of 
a certain subject by successful completion 
of a course or through examination in order 
to graduate. 

There are several disciplines that fresh- 
men and transfers must show proficiency 
in, including written and oral communica- 
tion, a foreign language, mathematical rea- 
soning and computer competency.

By Dana Donley 


On April 13, 1992, the city of Thousand 
Oaks Planning Commission approved Cali- 
fornia Lutheran University's plans to con- 
struct a tower to transmit radio signals for a 
campus radio station. The public hearing, 
which drew more than 300 persons, was not 
the beginning or the end of dialogue be- 
tween CLU and the local community. (See 
the detailed "time line" in the In Depth 
section on the radio tower.) 

The proposal to build this lower on 
Mountclef Ridge sparked a variety of reac- 
tions from residents, businesses, commu- 
nity organizations and city government, as 
well as students. The radio tower would 
extend the broadcast of cultural, entertain- 
ment and educational programming as far 

as Fillmore to the north, Point Mugu to the 
south, the East Valley Sheriff's station to 
the east and Ventura to the west. 

On April 21 the Thousand Oaks City 
Council initiated an appeal of the Planning 
Commission decision because of the "con- 
troversial nature of the proposal,'' accord- 
ing to city records. The purpose of the 
appeal was "to give the council the oppor- 
tunity to carefully consider the concerns of 
surrounding residents regarding the poten- 
tial environmental impacts of the project" 
and to allow time for the city 's cable broad- 
cast consultant to evaluate "technical fea Ni- 
hility of alternative sites 

A public hearing on April 28 was contin- 
ued to May 4 in order to allow full public 
testimony and avoid unusually late delib- 
erations for a vote. Prior to the opening of

Mountclef Hall divided into new, old 

By Nicole Mueller 


This year's freshmen living on the 400 
side of Mountclef Hall will surely notice a 
difference between their rooms and those 
on the newly renovated 300 side. 

CLU invested $235,000 into the renova- 
tion of the 300 side of Mountclef Hall this 
summer, putting off the renovation of the 
400 side until next year, according to Leon 
Scott, former vice-president of business 
and finance. 

Lutheran Brotherhood donated $85,000, 
another $85,000 was given by friends, do- 
nors and alumni of CLU to match that of 
Lutheran Brotherhood, and the difference- 
— another $65,000--came from the money 
allotted each year in CLU's budget for such 

"The committee originally thought that 
the budget was not there," Scott said. "But 
the money came through, and the Regents 
were very supportive in that capacity." 

According to Bill Stott, director of resi- 
dence life, the original plan to renovate 
Mountclef was approved in May 1992. The 
actual labor for the plan, headed by CLU 
staff contractor Stan Weston and foremen 
John Shembry and Mark Salter, began June 

The renovated rooms have new exhaust 
fans for better ventilation, new carpeting, 
double sinks with underneath cabinets, 
larger bathroom mirrors, fiberglass show- 
ers, new ceilings and roofing and restruc- 
tured toilets. Also installed are non-sliding 
doors with locks for the bathrooms and 
closets that provide more privacy and better

that may need to

cations. The color 
scheme is muted 

As for those 
rooms on the 400 
side, the budget 
was just not there. 

"While the origi- 
nal plan did include 
the renovation of 
both sides, the de- 
cision to renovate 
only one side basi- 
cally came down to 
money," said Stott. 
"Renovating one 
wing of Mountclef 
Hall costs the same 
as the entire 
Pederson or 
Thompson dorm," 
he added. 

The high cost of 
renovation was

Mountclef Residence Hall. 


Stott added: 
"The question we 
faced was: How 
much money can 
we come up with 
and what can we 
do with that 

When asked if 
he expects com- 
plaints from 
freshmen on the 
400 side, Stott 
answered, "Yes, 
but not really, be- 
cause we're doing 
the best we can. 
One side is better 
than nothing." 

As far as deal- 
ing with com- 
plaints is con- 
cerned, Stott is 
prepared if any 

"While it is un- 
fortunate that the 
whole building 
Decor painters, cann ot be done," 
the 300 side of stott said, "get- 
ting the money to 

do only one side was really a push. If 
students really want to move over to the 300 
side , we can probably accommodate a couple 
that want to. I am willing to begin a waiting 
list. There will probably be spaces avail- 
able where students did not show up." 

The 400 side, according to Stott, might be 
done next year. 

"It is not a guarantee, however," said 
Stott. "It all depends upon the budget. We 
will keep pushing for it and hopefully the 
new president (Luther Luedtke) and the 
Regents can make it happen." 

When asked why the committee didn't 
decide to save this year's budget until next 
year and add it to next year's budget to 
renovate the entire building and eliminate 
complaints, Stott explained, "Doing one 
side will provide benefits sooner to at least 
some students." 

In addition to the renovation of the 300 
side rooms, the swinging doors entering 
bom sides of the Mountclef "Plounge" are 
replaced with aluminum doors. TheKCLU 
radio station inside the Plounge area also 
extends into halfofa300-side suite. Blocked 
off from the other half of the suite, this 
extension provides the station with much- 
needed space. __ 

In the future, after Mountclef is entirely 
renovated, Stott hopes to focus first upon 
the renovation of the South, West and North 
dorms and then the Old West dorms. 

"Just less than half of the campus has 
bedroom doors and I hope to add doors to 
those that don't, in addition to recarpeting 
and doing some bathroom work. These 
decisions will basically depend upon the 

Science research 
projects funded 

Cal Lutheran chemistry professor Dr. 
Kristine Butcher gained support for her 
chemistry research project, "An Investi- 
gation of the Electronic Structure and 
Bonding in Ceramics," from a $20,558 
Cottrell College Science Award granted 
to CLU this summer. 

The award will be used to aid Butcher's 
project, which will involve CLU under- 
graduate students as assistants, for the 
entire two years of research. 
Ceramic materials possess properties that 
make them "potentially useful in a wide 
array of applications, particularly within 
the aerospace industry," according to 

"Our research will focus on investigat- 
ing the chemical bonding of properties in 
ceramics," Butcher said. 

The Cottrell College Science Awards 
support basic research in chemistry, phys- 
ics and astronomy in predominanUy un- 
dergraduate colleges. The purpose of the 
awards is to encourage undergraduate stu- 


dents to pursue careers in the sciences. 

CLU was also awarded $9 1 ,647 last May 
from the National Science Federation to 
support biology professor Dr. Kenneth 
Long's research project, "The Character- 
ization of the Interphotoreceptor Matrix of 
the Cone-Dominant Ground Squirrel 

By studying the retina in ground squir- 
rels, this project's research may have prac- 
tical applications to vision care for humans. 

The project, which has involved many 
CLU science students, began in June and is 
slated for completion in two years. 

Hanson and Bilodeau 
travel and study 

Two CLU professors studied and traveled 
this summer after being awarded national 
grants last May. 

CLU history professor Dr. Paul Hanson 
was selected to participate in the National 
Endowment for the Humanities Summer 

Institute at Columbia University in New 
York for six weeks in June and July, and 
geology professor Dr. William Bilodeau 
was selected to the National Science 
Foundation's Undergraduate Faculty En- 
hancement workshop that started in North 
Carolina and ended in Newfoundland for 
three weeks in August. 

Businesspeople benefit 
from import-export seminar 

The CLU Global Trade Center presented 
a two-part seminar, "Passport to Prosper- 
ous Import-Export" on June 13 and 27 in 
response to the number of Cal Lutheran 
students who have been taking interest in 
the importing and exporting aspects of in- 
ternational business. 

The event was attended by several CLU 
students and local businesspeople. ' 

The seminars dealt with success strate- 
gies and secrets learned from experts in the 
field. Several speakers spoke on topics rang- 

ing from tricks for ensuring payment to 
negotiating in a cross-culture environment . 

Kemmerling appointed as 

new director of health 


Beverly Kemmerling, a certified adult 
nurse practitioner since 1976, was ap- 
pointed as the new director of CLU stu- 
dent health services. Kemmerling, who 
received her bachelor's degree in nursing 
at the University of Iowa and master's 
degree in family health nursing at the 
University of Rochester in New York, 
started duties on May 1 . 

Scandinavian and Baltic 
Institute comes to CLU 

Fifteen select university educators from 
Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania. Finland, Nor- 
way and Sweden gathered on Cal 
Lutheran's campus July 3 -24 for the inau- 
gural year of the university's Scandina- 
vian and Baltic Institute. 

Participants studied all facets of the 
American higher education system by at- 
tending seminars.

After 22 years of serving the University 
of Southern California and tallying a long 
listofvariouseducational accomplishments, 
Luedtke is not the only one excited to lead 
CLU into the 2 1 st century. His selection as 
the president of CLU by an 11 -member 
search committee nationwide and his views 
of the private university have ignited enthu- 
siasm across campus. 

'The one, probably most compelling ex- 
perience throughout my interviews with the 
search committee — which continue to this 
day — is an over- 
whelming, perva- 
sive love within and 
for California 
Lutheran Univer- 
sity," Luedtke said. 

"I have no nega- 
tive views of CLU, 
only positive." 

Along with his 
positive approach, 
Luedtke, 48, plans 
to take another look 
at the university's 
goals — some of 
which have not been 
achieved, many of 
which have been 
delayed — by re- 
evaluating what should be at the top of the 

CLU's $32.5 million Long-Range Plan, 
charted eight years ago, lists first the devel- 
opment of the north campus with a "mod- 
ern, fully equipped physical education com- 
plex." The cost of this project, which in- 
cludes a creative arts center in addition to 
new athletic fields, an 1,800-seat gymna- 
sium, classrooms, offices and an Olympic- 
size pool, was set at $18.5 million. 

When asked about the athletic complex, 
which was originally proposed in 1984, 
Luedtke said he needed more information 
but already had something to offer. 

"This is something that caught my atten- 
tion before I was interviewed," he said. 
"Why should something like this be num- 

ber one, instead of two or three? This is dio station of this size should require an 

something we will determine." 

The need for quality educational facilities 
is the top priority, according to Luedtke, 
who will be formally inaugurated during 
CLU's Founder's Day Celebration week- 
end, Oct. 23 and 24. 

"The facilities built are not equal to the

Enrollment increases for '92 academic year 

By Katie Payne 


Citing better recruitment and the emer- 
genceof more well-prepared students, Chris 
Munoz, Cal Lutheran's former vice-presi- 
dent for enrollment, saidCLU's enrollment 
is up for the 1992-93 school year and the 
image of the university has benefited. 

CLU had 284 incoming freshmen as of 
June 16, compared to last year's 228. 

The perception of CLU is better than it 
has been in the past, Munoz said, adding 

that with a better perception comes more 
applications from potential students. He 
believes the university will have an extraor- 
dinary number of applicants for the fall of 

More applications for the university are 
being rejected than in the past as well. On 
June 14, 1990, 37 students were rejected. In 
1992, 92 students were rejected. Munoz 
feels this shapes "how people will perceive 
the university." 

There is a 1 2 percent increase for the total 
number of undergraduates this year com- 

pared to last when CLU had 1,169 under- 
graduate students. As of June 16, 1992, 
there were 1,310 undergraduates enrolled. 
The number of transfer students has re- 
mained about the same. 

CLU students are coming to the univer- 
sity with higher SAT scores than in years 
past The mean scores of SATs are up 17 
points from three years ago. This year, 
several students in the incoming freshman 
class have SAT scores in the 1300-1400 
range. One freshman had a 1 500 SAT score. 
Munoz added that CLU wants to become 

thoughtful in order to help students gradu- 
ate. He said that CLU is not for a select few 
and that the university wants students to 
have enough preparation to be successful. 
Munoz explained that the higher grade 
point average a student has, the more stu- 
dents will remain at CLU through their 
undergraduate studies. He also said that an 
increase in retention will lead loan increase 
in better-educated students. 

More retention can lead to more satisfac- 
tion from students, giving the university 
mote prestige. 

CORE 21 

Continued from page 1 

In the written communication area, stu- 
dents must complete a Freshman English 
course as well as two "writing-intensive" 
courses. These can be selected from ap- 
proved disciplines in the humanities, natu- 
ral science or computer science areas. 

Up until this fall, incoming students have 
been required to complete a beginning pub- 
lic speaking course as part of their general 
education. The oral communications field 
now requires proficiency in one course, 
which can be chosen from several commu- 
nication arts courses or drama courses. 

Requirements for proficiency in the field 
of foreign language have changed as well. 
Instead of taking a full year of a second 
language, students can now test into a course 
at the third semester (201) level. . 

Another change in this area deals with 
students who are earning their bachelor of 
science degrees. Two courses in computer 
science, logic and math or statistics have 
been allowed as substitutes for a foreign 
language thus far. Beginning in the fall of 
1994, however, B.S. degree students will be 
required to show proficiency in a foreign 
language as well. 

Another change in the core requirements 
for proficiency is in the area of mathemat-

'Real world' training a valuable resource 

By Carolyn Disch 


Look out "real" world, here I come! Those 
will be your thoughts in four years as you 
near graduation from college. You have 
made it through all the quizzes papers, 
presentations and finals and are ready to 
apply what you have learned in the real 
world. It may seem an eternity away, but it 
sneaks up on you and before you know it 
you are in the market for the career you have 
been striving for. 

CLU Student Resource Center provides 
students with services including: career and 
employment counseling, career resources, 
cooperative education, professional insti- 
tute, placement, recruitment and guidance. 

During freshman orientation, the Student 
Resource Center gives tours and encour- 
ages you to recognize your interests and 
goals. In the future, they can use this to let 
you know of recruiters, seminars or speak- 
ers that would be of interest to you. 

'The goal of freshman year is to assist 
students in career exploration so they can 
make a choice of academic and occupa- 
tional options," comments Cassandra 
Sheard, director of Career Planning and 

Assessment testing is an option. "Myers/ 
Briggs" is an assessment test that can give 
you an idea of possible careers that match 
your temperament or personality. Another 
test entitled, "Cops" is used to determine 
career interests. "Discover" is an interac- 
tive computer program that is helpful in 
describing various majors, identifying oc- 
cupational choices and explaining what is 
needed to prepare for them. 

The Student Resource Center continually 
offers resume writing and interviewing skills 
workshops. Other on-campus activities in- 
clude: the Career Expo, which is a way for 
students to get their name known with people 
in all the business world and learn about 
many of the different possible careers; pro- 

fessional recruitment, in which recruiters 
come to campus to talk to students inter- 
ested in working for that particular com- 
pany or organization; and speakers come 
throughout the year to provide insight on 
types of career opportunities. 

Co-operative Education gives the student 
an opportunity to try out intended career 
choices before graduation. Available for up 
to four credits a semester, Co-op gives 
students experience helps them earn money. 
"We feel work experience is keyed to 
your (the students') success because your 
competitors will have it, and you will feel 
more confident when integrated into the 
world," Sheard said. 

Carl Bowers, a '92 CLU graduate, has 
gotten a full-time job because of the expe- 
rience he acquired in his Co-op. 

"It definitely provided me with valuable 
experience which was necessary for me to 
get the job I have now," Bowers said. 

Darci Lohn, another '92 graduate, started 
a Co-op at a local architecture firm at the 
beginning of her junior year and it has now 
evolved into a permanent part-time job. 

"I think it is a good idea to do Co-op in 
order to find out if you're going into the 
right field," Lohn said. 

Co-operative Education positions are 
available to sophomores, juniors and se- 
niors who have a 2.5 G.P. A or above. Inter- 
ested students should contact Marlena Rob- 
erts, director of Co-operative Education. 

The Pre-Professional Institute is a pro- 
gram designed to promote academic prepa- 
ration, career planning and employment 
placement for each student through partici- 
pation in clubs that enhance their major 
such as: the Psychology Club, Rotaract, or 
Comma, the Communication Arts Club. 

PPI includes: mentoring, which involves 
talking with alumni and upper-class stu- 
dents concerning their experiences with 
classes, majors and careers, forums, speak- 
ers, field trips, advisement, co-operative 
education, career guidance and placement 

all through specific activities that relate 
directly to students' majors. 

An option helpful in preparing for inter- 
views is to start a "living resume." This lists 
your academic preparation, pre-professional 
experience and hands-on work. It's basi- 
cally an outline of all the things you have 
accomplished while at school. You can 
continue to update it as you move through 

Your "living resume" is proof that you are 
preparing to contribute to the community 
and world and won't be surprised at what is 
out there. 

As you draw closer to graduation, career 

placement becomes of greater importance. 
The Student Resource Center, located across 
from Alumni Hall, supports students by 
offering employment and career workshops 
as well as professional recruitment orienta- 
tion, in which graduating seniors and alumni 
are given an orientation of what to expect 
when interviewed by recruiters. 

It is important to remember that these 
advantages are there for you, the student. 
No one can do it for you, but the Resource 
Center will be of much help in assisting in 
any way possible. There is no better lime 
than the present After all, four years do go 
by very fast.

Discover Program one highlight of S.R.C. 

The Student Resource Center has an op- 
portunity for every student. For freshmen, 
sophomores, juniors and seniors, the center 
has plenty of programs aimed at broadening 
students' horizons. 

The Discover Program is just one of the 
many instructive programs offered at the 
S.R.C. This computer program is designed 
to help students choose a career. A student 
can find on or off campus jobs through the 
Student Employment Service at the S.R.C. 
Paula Smith is the director of this program 
and she is always willing to help students 
find employment. ^ mmmm ^ 

The California Work Study Program is an 
important service for students requiring fi- 
nancial aid. If you are searching for a way to 
work off your student loans, while earning 
school credit this could be your answer. To 
find out more information simply contact 
Melanie Hudes. To qualify, students must 
be a California resident, have a G.P. A. of 
2.5 and exhibit some financial need. This 
necessary program needs support from CLU 
students, because the state is considering 
cutting its funding. 

Internships are vitally important to the 
education process. Many companies require 
students to be an intem. Many majors insist 

on internships. The Cooperative Education 
Program allows students to receive experi- 
ence in the work place while earning col- 
lege credit Sophomores, juniors and se- 
niors with a G.P.A. of 2.5 or better should 
talk to Marlena Roberts for more informa- 
tion. There are internships available in ev- 
ery field. It is a rewarding and stimulating 
program according to those who have done 

Tonya Chrislu directs a Study Abroad 
program that is gaining popularity. The 
program allows students to explore the world 
while continuing (heir education. Students 
must be at least a second-semester sopho- 

more with a G.P.A. of 2.75 or higher to

Career Planning and Placement, instructs a 
class called Senior Seminar. This class is 
offered through the SRC, helps seniors pre- 
pare for the working world. 

Seniors as well as alumni are also eligible 
for the Student Recruitment Services avail- 
able at the SRC. This service allows stu- 
dents to find employers who are currently 
hiring. Contact Shirley McConnel for more 
information on this program. 

The Student Resource Center has the pos- 
sibility helping all students succeed. Come

Security adds equipment 

By Nicole Mueller 


This year, CLU Security will be using some new equipment that will enable them 
to provide better service to the school. 

Staff will be seen patrol ing in their new Ford Ranger or their GMC fully equipped 
pickup truck. In addition, security will also have new radios. This equipment will 
provide them with more coverage. According to Watch Station Commander Ray 
Jackson Sr., "Security has 300 acres to cover and the new trucks and radios will make 
it a lot easier. 

According to Jackson, there will also be a property room located in the Mount Clef 
Residence Hall for lost-and-found items. A log book of the items will be kept in the 
Security office, so if a student is missing an item, he or she can call Security at Ext. 
3208) to possibly locate it. 

When asked if there was anything in particular that he thought incoming freshmen, 
or students in general, should know, Jackson answered "We're always concerned 
about students running around late at night, especially the young ladies. We'd like 
to see them use the Buddy System. And as far as drinking is concerned, it will always 
remain a concern." 

Jackson wanted to remind the students about what Security really is here for. Said 
Jackson, "We're like a campus police force, except we're a lot more low key. We 
are here to monitor the dormitories - we're not spying, just monitoring. We have to 
give tickets sometimes, but don't like to. We just do what we have to do. We also 
try to treat everyone the same; we try to play no favorites." 

Jackson also mentioned that CLU Security is open 24 hours a day. 

"There is always at least one security staff person present at any given time to be 
there for the students. 

"CLU Security is here just to maintain the order and safekeep of all students. It is 
no personality contest. We are here for you, not against you," he said. 

New faces join familiar programs at women's center 

By Dana Donley 


The Women's Resource Center is look- 
ing forward to another year of interesting 
programs and lectures. 

The fall semester will see some familiar 
faces and some new ones. Kathryn Swan- 
son, the center's director, will be joined by 
Susan Ackerman, new assistant director. 

Sophomore Kristin Walstad will be this 
year's student assistant 

The center is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. as 
a drop-in location .where students can study , 
eat lunch or just relax between classes. The 
WRC, also offers the use of a reference 
library with information on a variety of 
issues from a woman's perspective. 

The WRC sponsors "Creative Options," 
an informative all -day seminar. In the past. 
Creative Options has featured some of the 
most well-known women speakers in the 
country, including former presidential 
contender Rep. Pat Schroeder, D-Colo., 
and current U.S. candidate Barbara Boxer 
of California. 

It has attracted more than 900 visitors 
each of the past two years. 

In spring, the center presents "Festival of 
Women in the Arts." Students and faculty 
participate in presentations and displays in 
art, music and poetry. 

The Brown Bag Series lectures, usually 
presented weekly at noon throughout the 
school year, offer discussions on- and off- 
campus speakers on diverse topics. Those 

Kathryn Swanson 

attending bring their lunch. Coffee, tea and 
popcorn are provided. 

Swanson stresses that, although the 
center's primary focus is on support for re- 
entry women, all members of the CLU 
community are encouraged to attend activi- 
ties, including men. 

There was standing-room-only at last 
semester's luncheon lecture on the "Men's 
Movement." Attendance was recommended 
by some professors on campus, but more 
than half those present were there based on 
personal interest. 

As new assistant director, Ackerman plans 
to line up another interesting series of lec- 
tures in the coming year. A schedule of 
events will be available early in the fall

'Spiritual development' 
rewarded with scholarship 

Much like its anonymous benefactor, the 
Spirit Award, a $500 cash scholarship, has 
received very little publicity since it began 
four years ago. But Dr. Beverly Kelley, 
who oversees the award is hoping that 
changes as the award begins its fifth year. 
The award was developed in 1988 to 
increase "spiritual development" on the 

" 'Spiritual development' means what the 
members of the Communication Arts De- 
partment decide it means," Kelley said. 
"It's vague, but it's meant to be a little 
vague. It encourages people to do more 
spiritually based projects." 

Although most of the four previous win- 
ners have submitted rel igious-themed proj- 
ects, Kelley said religion doesn't have to a 
part of the project, but "normally people 
don't submit anything unless there is some 
value base; it expresses a value." 

The project itself can be film, video, 
electronic or print media, or a speech — 
anything that has had an audience of at 
least 25 people. 

The first winner, Janet Ambuehl submit- 
ted a film on changing one's perspective 
through spiritual awakening. Ron Culmer 
won in 1990 for a video on solving life's 
problems through spiritual search. There 
was no winner in 1991, so two winners 
were selected in 1992. Micah Reitan and 
James Carraway both submitted opinions 
interpersonal relationships that had been 
published in the Echo. 

Entrants do not have to be Communica- 
tion Arts majors, although thatdepartment's 
faculty does the judging, nor do they have 
to be students. Anyone in the CLU commu- 
nity is welcome to submit a project for the 
Spirit Award. 

The award comes in the form of a check 
to the winner, which can be used for any 
purpose. Some students have used it to- 
ward furthering their education; Ambuehl 
used her money to finance another film. 

Entries must be submitted before April 
and winners will be announced by May.

is to be used for travel and study in Sweden. 
Applicants must be women of Swedish 
descent who are either working toward or 
have just completed a fifth-year teaching 
credential and who have demonstrated an 
interest in the preservation of the Swedish 
culture. Application forms may be picked 
up from Delia Greenlee, director of grants 
and scholarships, in the Institutional Ad- 
vancement Office and must be submitted 
by Dec. 1, 1992. The winner will be deter- 
mined prior to Christmas break. 

Donna Fargo Memorial Scholarship 

An award of $ 1 ,000 will be granted to a 
CLU student on the basis of campus com- 
petition. Brief project proposals aimed at 
"the study and preservation of the history 
of the Conejo Valley" will be accepted 
anytime through March 15, 1993, by Delia 

The project might be an independent 
study, part of a regular course of study, a 
research project, or some other suitable 
vehicle. Any medium is acceptable — art, 
drama, literature, research ... you name it 
— as long it serves Donna Fargo 's original 

Fargo, a name that is interwoven with the 
history of the Conejo Valley, died in 1985 
and left this endowed fund to CLU. A 
committee will select the winning project.

8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday 

CLU Health Services, located at Regents 16, welcomes visits 
from any enrolled CLU student. Registered nurses and nurse 
practitioners are available daily. A physician is present from 8 
a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday and Wednesday. You may walk in, or 
make an appointment by calling 493-3225. Medicines are 
provided at low cost. There is no charge for office visits. 

'Don't leave home without it' 
We're all familiar with this well-known phrase from a popular 
credit card commercial. However, our new Health Services 
Director, Beverly Kemmerling, would like CLU students to 
keep that phrase in mind when considering health insurance 
coverage this fall. 

The cost of health insurance and the cost of health care has 
skyrocketed in recent years. Those of us who still have health 
insurance in this era of high unemployment can consider our- 
selves fortunate. Yet many college students come to school 

without health insurance. 

Do you have health insurance? Before you start college this 
fall, check to see that you are still covered by your parent's or 
your employer's health insurance while in school. Many health 
insurers stop covering dependents when they reach age 23 or 
25, even if they are full-time students. 

Do you have athletic health insurance? Remember this only 
covers you for accidents on the playing field, not for illness or 
other injuries. 

Health insurance purchased privately can be very expensive, 
averaging around $400 month. But CLU undergraduates can 
buy health insurance for as little as $153 per year (Graduate 
students pay $25 more). Coverage for children of students is 
available at reasonable rates, as well. 

Don't gamble with your health — or find yourself owing 
$12,000 for an emergency appendectomy in addition to your 
college loans. Call Health Services at 493-3225 for informa- 
tion about low cost student health insurance.

In "The Real Inspector Hound," a comedy satire, two theater 
critics of some stature are reviewing a murder- mystery. The 
real intrigue begins when the critics are drawn into the 
play within the play and must perform their new roles right 
down to the deadly denouement. 

"After Magritte." a surrealistic comedy, takes place in a 
home where three people seem to be logically pursuing a 
bizarre ly routine existence. They have been arguing about a 
strange sight ~ a bearded, one-legged soccer player hop- 
ping down the street in striped pajamas — when a detective 
enters to question them about a crime.

the fall of 1992 and will direct the American premiere of 
his play on campus. Ideas about elitism, sexism and racism 
is what "Men. Women and Insanity" is about. The ideas are 
expressed in the tough, vivid images and language of the

The Echo 

Cross-cultural experiences gained in Study Abroad 

By Tonya Chrislu 


"Wow, what a difference it is to be away. 
It's quite a different place. I'm thankful for 
all that I learned here." — liberal arts major 
in London. 

"I've made good friends from Australia, 
Sweden, Colombia, Barbados and the 
USA." — a business major in Japan. 

"I've gone through a lot of changes . . . 
You can read about culture shock, write 
about it, try to express it. But if you expe- 
rience it, you understand it truly." — a 
liberal arts major in London. 

'The difference between the West and 
the East are bigger than I thought." — a 
business major in Japan. 

"I have had a great experience here. A 
part of me wants to slay.' — a sociology 
major in Wales. 

These are comments written by students 
during a study abroad experience. All of 
them have tried, through letters and com- 
ments to family and and friends, to express 
an intense cross-cultural and personal ex- 
perience. But, as one study abroad partici- 
pant said, "It is so difficult to articulate 

what happened and how much it meant to 

What's so special about study abroad? If 
it has such an impact, why is it so difficult 
to explain to someone else. 

For those who study abroad, the experi- 
ence is not just a matter of studying in 
another country. It is a matter of experienc- 
ing something totally new and challenging. 
And yet, it is not something that just hap- 
pens to you. The great American educator, 
John Dewey, said that we become experi- 
enced when we learn from what happened 
to us after we have thought about it,, re- 
flected on it and drawn some conclusions. 
It can happen in the classroom , at home, on 
the street or in a crowded elevator. 

In my opinion however, students seem 
better able to make new meaning out of 
their experience when they are abroad. 
Fac ing challenges they don ' t face at home — 
challenges to their most basic assump- 
tions — moves them to a stage of develop- 
ment that few other experiences can. The 
change in environment actually speeds up 
the maturation process. 

There are students who study abroad 
because they are looking for an exotic 
experience. They often approach it saying,

Tonya Chrislu 

"People over there may be different and I'll 
enjoy these differences, but as for me, well 
I'll just be my old sweet self." There is a 
tolerance and openness to this approach, 
but it's naive thinking. 

This approach doesn't take in to consid- 
eration there really are cultural differences 
(for example: what is polite in one country 
may be extremely rude in another). It also 
doesn't recognize that each culture devel- 
ops its way of life through a long process, 
and that each culture has validity. 

Sheila Spear, the associate director of 
international programs at Brown Univer- 
sity, points out that "the experience of 

living out, living through, living in another 
culture, with its own history and values is 
an experiential way for students to come to 
a more soph isticated understanding of them- 
selves and the world." 
How can one possibly explain such monu- 
mental learning in a few sentences? 

"OK, so you learn a lot, but is it fun?" I 
hear you asking. 

Yes, of course it's fun; no one would go 
if there wasn't some fun involved. But 
what stays with you is a feeling of incred- 
ible growth, motivation to learn things you 
never even thought of before and an under- 
standing that there are no single answers 
but rather common patterns upon which we 
base our interpretations of the world. 

Perhaps what we need to do is ask study 
abroad returnees not "What was it like?" 
but "What did you learn?" "How is that 
country different from the U.S.? What, in 
your opinion, do they do 'better' than we?" 

Surely these questions will bring about a 
more exciting conversation. And perhaps 
we will get more specifically to the point of 
studying abroad. 

California Lutheran University offers 23 
programs in 11 different countries. To 
qualify for most programs, you must have 
at least a 2.5 G.P.A. and in some cases, 
ability in a foreign language. 

For more information about how you can 
study abroad, come to the Study Abroad 
information meeting Wednesday, Sept. 9, 
at 7:30 p.m. in the Nelson Room. 

Students generally study abroad in their 
junior year but planning can begin as early 
as the first semester of the freshman year.

Volunteer Center links students, aid organizations 

CLU's new University Volunteer Cen- 
ter, located in the Campus Acitivities Of- 
fice across from the coffee shop, cele- 
brated its grand opening last semester. Its 
purpose is to provide information and as- 
sistance to students and staff about volun- 
teer opportunities, agency orientations and 
one-time events. 

Developed by a task force of students, 
faculty and administrators, the center ex- 
ists to enhance the educational experience 
of CLU students by providing easy access 
to community service opportunities. 
Through community and campus service 
opportunities, the UVC seeks to augment 
classroom experience, to create occasions 
for career exploration, to connect CLU to 
the community, to promote the ethics of 
public service, and to help students gain an 
awareness of social concerns affecting the 
community and beyond. 

"We're trying to emphasize that by vol- 
unteering you are bettering yourself and 
learning about yourself through interact- 
ing with others," says Jason Russell, 
ASCLU president and one of the students 
who helped open the center. 

Students volunteer for individual rea- 
sons and that's OK. A student who might 
have volunteered because a friend was 
doing it, or who had some free time, may 
later sign up for more projects because he 
or she hooked on it. Working with a group 
of people, whom you may have just met, 
toward a common goal can be invigorat- 
ing, challenging and very rewarding. Most 
students will walk away with more insight 
into their own strengths, values and fears. 

Projects that ran last semester included 
renovating a house (in conjunction with 
Habit for Humanity); providing compan- 
ionship to the area's homeless at Holy 
Trinity Lutheran Church (in conjunction 

Upward Bound 
funding OK'd 

The Upward Bound program, which of- 
fers academic and personal support serv- 
ices to low-income and first-generation 
high school studentswanting to go to col- 
lege, has been re- funded by the U.S. De- 
partment of Education through August 

Upward Bound has been on the Cal Lu- 
theran campus since the fall of 1980. It 
emphasizes daily composition- literature, 
mathematics and science classes. The pro- 
gram completed its six-week residential 
component July 31. 

Beginning the year by recruiting from 
such high schools as Camarillo, Channel 
Islands, Hueneme , Moorpark and Rio Mesa, 
Upward Bound is looking forward to the 
new school year. 

"We look forward to being here for an- 
other three years," said Laura Harkey, di- 
rector of Upward Bound "and to providing 
deserving students with the opportunity to 
pursue a college education." 

Upward Sound has had 14 members 
graduate from CLU. 

with Campus Ministry and the Conejo 
Valley Winter Shelter); serving a meal to 
residents at Zoe Christian Center in Ox- 
nard; and attending an agency orientation 
at Interface. 

The center, staffed by students Melissa 
Hansen, a junior, Allison Pilmer, a sopho- 

more, and Sally Schillaci, director of Cam- 
pus Activity, is also here to assist any 
existing student club on campus with com- 
munity service projects and students are 
invited to volunteer to direct and coordi- 
nate projects through the UVC for an agency 
or project of their choice. 

Stop by the UVC this September to see 
what projects are coming up. Students can 
sign up to volunteer on an ongoing basis or 
for a one-time project — it doesn't have to 
be a major commitment. The UVC is open 
Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 
2 p.m. and can be reached at Ext. 3680.

View of proposed tower location on Mountclef Ridge - "between the CLU letters and 
the cross"- from CLU campus. 

By Dana Donley 


The where, what and why of the proposed 
radio tower has been approached from 
several points of view. Reports have been 
submitted to government agencies, resi- 
dents have voiced their impressions and 
California Lutheran University has offered 
responses to questions. 

According to environmental reports, "The 
proposed radio tower would be located 
within the California Lutheran University 
campus on Mountclef Ridge ... the portion 
of the CLU campus located to the north of 
Olsen Road." 

A letter received on October 28, 1991 
from neighboring residents suggests that a 
more accurate location description is, "the 
northwest end of the CLU campus, on top 
of Mountclef Ridge, between the CLU let- 
ters and the cross." The planning 
commission's April 13 resolution uses the 

location description suggested by residents. 

The campus was present when the gen- 
eral plan was adopted by the City of Thou- 
sand Oaks in 1971 and operates under a 
Special Use Permit (SUP.) Construction 
of the proposed radio tower requires a 
modification of that permit. 

According to background on the Supple- 
mental Environmental Impact Report, 
(SEIR) the construction on the top of 
Mountclef Ridge will include a 150-foot 
high radio antenna tower and a 256-square- 
foot equipment building with a height of 
1 1 feet. The primary components of the 
radio tower include nine guy wires with 
three anchors (three wires per anchor) 
positioned 120 feel from the tower. No 
changes in access road or other area im- 
provements are planned. 

The purpose of CLUS proposed radio 
tower construction is to transmit the radio 
signals of a new non-commercial, educa- 

See WHY, page 13 


Continued from page 1 

the May 4 hearing, however, Chuck Cohen, 
CLU's attorney, requested that the City 
Council "continue the case on an indefi- 
nite basis" to allow CLU's technical con- 
sultants to re-examine Rasnow Peak and 
other alternate sites for the tower. 

Cohen explained that CLU was "sensi- 
tive to the community's concerns," but 
wished to retain the right to have the 
appeal heard if a suitable alternative wasn't 
found in a reasonable period of time. 

The council decided to continue the case 
on an "open hearing basis and remove the 
appeal from the calendar." There was no 
vote on the appeal. Some of the residents 

in attendance were unhappy because they 
did not have the opportunity to present 
their views on the issue. 

A June 23 City of Thousand Oaks Plan- 
ning and Community Development memo 
notes mat CLU representatives have re- 
quested and "fully expect die FCC to grant" 
an extension of die permit for construction 
of the radio tower until December 18. 
1992. The permit expired on July 19, 1992. 

Both Dennis Gillette, CLU vice-presi- 
dent for institutional advancement, and 
Arthur Lopez, CLU director of broadcast 
operations and chair of the Communication 
Arts Department, have said there's no rea- 
son to believe meextension won't be granted. 
As of Aug. 5, the FCC had not responded to 
CLU's requesL Lopez explained mat the 
governmental process of permit extension 
is a slow one.

Adverse impacts of 
radio tower discussed 

By Dana Donley 


The Oct.21, 1991, and Nov. 18, 1991, 
Planning Commission public hearings were 
continued to allow further investigation of 
potential adverse effects of the proposed 
Calif om ia Lutheran University radio tower. 
A Supplemental Environmental Impact 
Report (SEIR) that addressed issues of 
concern was circulated for a mandatory 45- 
day public review period. 

On April 13 the Planning Commission 
approved CLU's plans to build a radio 
tower on Mountclef Ridge. The City Coun- 
cil subsequently motioned for an appeal of 
that decision. 
Denise Filz, a representative from a com- 
munity group, explains that "Friends of 
Mountclef Ridge" was formed in the fall of 
1991 when residents began receiving no- 
tices of the October 21 public hearing. The 
ridge location of the proposed tower repre- 
sents, according to Filz, "a quality of life" 
that is near and dear to many residents. 

Filz says she is not against students 
having a radio station and admitted that 
CLU is an asset to the community, but 
pointed out that education was not the sole 
consideration in the eyes of local resi- 

"Life just isn't made up of pat answers. 
There's a lot of gray area," she remarked, 
"and that is what we're dealing with in 
relation to this radio tower a lot of underly- 
ing issues." 

Filz and "Friends of Mountclef Ridge," 
in general, do not agree with most of the 
conclusions in the environmental reports. 
They conclude that the EIR and the SEIR 
are incomplete and that because the hear- 
ing was continued, the group did not have 
the opportunity to present their case before 
the Thousand Oaks City Council. Written 
documentation from the group, however, is 
included in the city files. 
Filz identified the main issues as ques- 

tions of visual, health, environmental and 
radio/TV signal impacts. She explained that 
written expression of resident concern re- 
garding the effects of the proposed radio 
tower was available for public examination 
at the City of Thousand Oaks Planning Com- 
mission office. 

A review of that documentation, as well as 
CLU and government agency responses re- 
vealed the following: 

A memorandum from the City of Thou- 
sand Oaks Departmentof Planning and Com- 
munity Development to the Planning Com- 
mission prior to the October 21, 1991 public 
hearing discussed issues of concern. 

According to the memo, "the antenna will 
be located on the easterly portion of the 
ridge line north of the existing CLU campus, 
where its exposure will be limited to a 
visually confined area because of interven- 
ing topography." The memo also states that 
"From certain viewpoints, the tower and the 
equipment building will silhouette on the 
ridge line." 

The primary issue identified in the memo 
is "whether the construction of the radio 
antenna on this ridge line can be considered 
consistent with the goals and objectives of 
the ridge line study and ridge line ordi- 
nance." This ordinance mandates the pres- 
ervation of certain land features that bound 
the city. The CLU- owned property on 
Mountclef Ridge is subject to this municipal 

The April 13 planning commission reso- 
lution (No.30-~92 PC) that approved CLU's 
. plans to construct a radio tower, addresses 
the visual impact of the tower as "significant, 
but not adverse." 

The commission's final resolution states 
that the proposed radio antenna tower "will 
not be substantially incompatible with the 
natural environment and beauty of the sur- 
rounding area in general and is consistent 
with the intent of the ridge line protection 

Most objections from residents of theThou-

Thousand Oaks' philosophy regarding 
ridge line protection. 

A March 9, 1992 letter to the Planning 
Commission from Lynn B. Bickle.amem- 
ber of "Friends of Mountclef Ridge," 
charges that the environmental reports 
are "woefully inadequate and, by omis- 
sion and commission, blatant attempts to 
subvert the spirit and goals of the ridge 
line and scenic highway protection in our 
city." She charges that the reports (and 
planning commission that accepted the 
reports) "failed to make a collective as- 
sessment" and chose to continue to "de- 

lete views, which might cause the reader 
to come to his or her own conclusion; that, 
taken collectively, the visual impacts are 
unavoidable and significant." Bickle de- 
scribes the proposed tower as an "eye- 
sore," which will "stick out like a sore 

Comments regarding visual impact in- 
cluded in correspondence from the 
Rancho Santa Rosa Property Owners As- 
sociation refer to a "150-foot tower, jut- 
ting above the horizon" and "an un-natu- 
ral, obtrusive, mechanical structure on the 
natural horizon of a semi-rural area."

design of the tower is said to be necessary 
for broadcast of radio signals to the desig- 
nated area. 

In a written response to questions from 
local residents, CLU representatives also 
stated that the proposed radio station will 
"provide academic preparation for CLU 
communication arts majors in radio pro- 
duction, better enabling them to succeed 
in their career goals." 

One of the issues addressed in the April 
13 planning commission resolution was 
the community benefit from a radio sta- 
tion on the CLU campus - the tower would 
have the potential to broadcast federal 
emergency information to the region. 

An April 2 letter from a Thousand Oaks 
resident expresses the understanding that 
the radio station "will be of benefit to the 
communilybeing able to air educational, 
stimulating and unique programs... ." 

A letter from another resident in support 
of the tower states that the addition of a 
campus radio station will attract students 
from outside the area, which means new 
money to the community "through the 

additional educational opportunities made 
available by the station." This letter men- 
tions the economic impact of CLU on the 
community within a 50-mile radius as "$87 
million annually, producing $5 million in 
sales tax revenues. The correspondence 
from Norman and Barbara Lueck to the 
City of Thousand Oaks Planning Com- 
mission closes by saying that CLU "adds 
toour quality of life, while at the same time 
giving us all the educational benefits a 
university can offer." 

At a community forum held on the CLU 
campus on March 11, 1992, opposing rea- 
sons "why not" were presented. Mike 
Stark, a Santa Rosa Valley resident, re- 
sponded to CLU's reasons for construct- 
ing the radio antenna by saying that rather 
than contributing to the enhancement of 
life, the proposed plan was "for the en- 
hancement of life — it's for the enhance- 
ment of somebody's pocket" 

Stark said, "CLU is a 3,000 student 
campus ... this is not for the community. 
This is for some self-serving group of 
people at this university. It's not a major 
university ... it's not UCLA ... it's a small 

Stark ended his comments by saying, 
"the community doesn't wantit, your neigh- 
bors don't want it, the cultural enhance- 
ment is not desired and you don ' t need it to 
train your students." 

City records show that there are both 
"why" and "why not"opinions in the com- 
munity, as well as on the CLU campus. 






"Unlike drawings that 
surfaced in the com- 
munity, the tower is not 
shaped like the Eiffel 
Tower with a wide base 
coming to a narrow 
point on top. It's nar- 
row from its base to the 
top, only 18 inches in 
diameter ... it will not 
be lit or contain blink- 
ing red lights ... It will 
be a natural, steel color 
with a lattice design al- 
lowing visibility 
through it" J

radio tower proposal

CLU's written response to questionsand 
concerns of residents addressed the subject 
of visual impact. 

"Unlike drawings that surfaced in the 
community, the tower is not shaped like 
the Eiffel Tower with a wide base coming 
to a narrow point on top. It's narrow from 
its base to the top, only 18 inches in diam- 

The response went on to explain that 
there would be "no blinking red lights," 
because lights are required only for towers 
over 200 feet. The lower will be steel color 
with a lattice design allowing visibility 
through it with guy lines or support for the 
tower of one quarter inch in diameter. 

The base of the 150-foot tower, accord- 
ing to the CLU correspondence, "will not 
be placed at the highest point on the ridge, 
but below the actual ridge line." 

Nearby residents have expressed con- 
cern regarding possible health dangers 
resulting from the radiation from the radio 
signals of the proposed tower. 

According to CLU's response to these 
inquires, the antenna will emit radio fre- 
quency radiation (RFR) similar to that of 
household appliances, such as microwave 
ovens, cordless phones and television sets. 
The antenna would meet the same require- 
ments set for such appliances by the Ameri- 
can National Standards Institute (ANSI) 
to guarantee human health and safety. 

Documentation notes that radio fre- 
quency (RF) fields are an entirely differ- 
ent frequency range from "atomic" radia- 
tion and low- frequency electromagnetic 
fields produced by conventional power 


InthebApril lOreportbyRobertF.Gonsett 
of Communications General Coporation, 
Gonsett stated that the "KCLU antenna is 
sufficiently well-designed and well-elevated 
that persons standing on any part of the 
University's property would be exposed to 
no more than 3 percent of RF power density 
levels allowed by the ANSI standard - even 
a person standing on rock outcroppings or 
at the base of the antenna tower." 

According to the Gonsett report, a com- 
mittee, which is now updating the ANSI 
standard, has found that "No verified re- 
ports exist of injury to human beings or of 
adverse effects on the health of human 
beings who have been exposed to electro- 
magnetic fields within the limits of fre- 
quency specified by previous ANSI guides." 

The April 13 planning commission deci- 
sion states that the radio tower will not be 
detrimental to the public interest, health, 
safety and general welfare. 
Questions about radio and TV interference 
have been raised. CLU replied that the loca- 
tion of the antenna and the surrounding 
terrain is designed to literally beam over 
the residences adjacent to the antenna and 
not affect reception. If there is any disrup- 
tion to a homeowner's radio or television 
reception, CLU reminds residents that 
KCLU is required by the FCC to eliminate 
the disruption. 

The Gonsett report also addresses the 
signal blanketing issue. According to 
Gonsett, the main beam of the radio signal 
is well-elevated and will pass over the homes, 
but if an individual happens to live within 
the main signal beam, any interference 
should be "minimal and easily corrected." 
Gonsett notes that KCLU has proposed a 
Class A transmission, which is the lowest 
powered group of FM stations allocated by 

The importance of an environmental im- 
pact report (EIR) is best explained by look- 
ing at an excerpt from the Final Environ- 
mental Impact Report (EIR), which was 
considered at the October 1991 City Plan- 
ning Commission hearing on the proposed 
CLU radio tower. 

According to the introduction of this re- 
port, "EIRs are required under the Califor- 
nia Environmental Quality ACT (CEQA) 
when a proposed project could have an 
adverse effect on the environment ... An 
EIR is an informational document that will 
inform public agency decision makers and 
the public generally of the significant envi- 
ronmental effect of a project, identify pos- 
sible ways to minimize the significant ef- 
fects and describe reasonable alternatives to 
the project." 

The same EIR further stated that "Dis- 
agreement among experts does not make an 
EIR inadequate, but an EIR should summa- 
rize the main points of disagreement among 

experts." . 

A Supplemental Environmental Impact 
Report (SEIR) was requested as a result of 
the October 1991 hearing. This report 
included "expanded, revised or otherwise 
modified" information in relation to po- 
tential visual impacts and technical opera- 
tional issues raised during the prior hear- 
ings. The SEIR also included results of a 
peer review and "thorough and complete 
responses to comments received from the 
public and agencies." State CEQA guide- 
lines were followed in both the Final EIR 
and the SEIR. 

Although noting that the relevance of 
the environmental report preparer's ex- 
pertise was beyond the scope of the EIR, 
Greg Smith, senior planner for the City of 
Thousand Oaks, responded to a March 12, 
1992 letter from a group of 12 citizens 
regarding Interface Planning and Counsel- 
ing Corporation of Santa Barbara. Smith 
stated that the firm was selected "on the 
basis of their statement of qualifications 
and experience in environmental impact 
assessment after a review of competitive 
proposals for the project." 


"Antenna farm" on Rasnow Peak has been discussed as alternate tower site. 

the FCC. He explains that FM, as opposed to 
AM, will also "materially reduce the num- 
ber of interference cases, if any occur at all. " 
He adds that interference from FM broad- 
cast frequencies is rarely a significant prob- 

Those in opposition to the Mountclef lo- 
cation of the tower have repeatedly sug- 
gested that CLU consider alternate sites. 
Alternatives had been investigated prior to 
the hearings and continue at present 

The existing "antenna farm" on Rasnow 
Peak is the most discussed site, but CLU 
says that "the coverage area of the signal 
would be severely decreased." Since the 
FCC grants licenses based on community 

service, there's concern that the signal re- 
duction could invalidate an FCC permit. 
An April 10 letter from Ronald Goodrich, 
director of engineering at Ventura County 
Cablevision (VCC) addressed a "signal 

blanketing" problem that could occur if the 
tower was located on Rasnow Peak. 

Both the cablevision company and 
KNJO, 92. 7 MHz operate from the Rasnow 
Peak. According to Goodrich, the two FM 
signal s emanaii ng from the same site could 
possibly impair reception for viewers. 

As a result of the appeal, the City Coun- 
cil contracted Jonathan L. Kramerof Com- 
munications Support Corporation.

Zeanah's push for tower appeal a matter of principle 

•City government is the grass roots level of politics. Citizens should be able to express their concern.' 

By Dana Donley 


City Councilwoman Elois Zeanah 

At a City Council Meeting on April 21, 
1992, Councilwoman Elois Zeanah called 
for an appeal of the April 13 planning 
commission decision that approved CLU 's 
radio tower plans. According to an April 22 
article in the News Chronicle, Zeanah de- 
fined the tower decision as a "policy issue" 
and questioned whether the Planning Com- 
mission had considered thecity'sridgeline 
ordinance when it made its decision. 

In a recent interview, Zeanah described 
her initiation of an appeal as a matter of 
principle. The principle she identified was 
the "consistent enforcement of the city 
plan." She explained her responsibility to 

"uphold environmental protection codes 
and policies and respond to the wishes and 
concerns of local citizens" as a City Coun- 
cil member. 

"City government is the grass roots level 
of politics. Citizens should be able to 
express theirconcern," Zeanah said, "If 
they see a problem they should talk to 
neighbors, organize and mobilize." 

She applauded the formation of "Friends 
of Mountclef Ridge" as an example of the 
type of grass roots mobilization needed 
for an efficient political system. 

Zeanah has been a member of the City 
Council since 1990 and was a member of 
the 1988 ridge line study and open-space 
subcommittee. She pointed out that she 
hasobserved a"double standard, tradeoffs 
and inconsistent enforcement of city 

codes" during these years. 

Although she has been a local resident 
for 14 years, Zeanah refers to her difficulty 
to make an impact as an individual because 
she is an "outsider." She sees herself as a 
politician who is "driven by commitment 
and dedication to uphold the laws of the 
city," rather than a part of the powerful 
"political machine," machine in which rules 
are bent by those who are driven by "ego 
and power," according to Zeanah. 

Prior to her involvement in local politics, 
Zeanah was a re-entry student at CLU and 
close to earning her degree in business 
administration. She expressed no intention 
of running for any higher political office 
and said she plans to continue her involve- 
ment in local issues as a "concerned resi- 
dent of the Conejo Valley." 


Continued from page 14 

While much of the April 28 report was 
extremely technical, this bottom-line 
summary included Kramer's evaluation: 

1) A potential for signal interference 
exists from both the Mountclef Ridge 
and Rasnow Peak sites. 

2) The. issue of signal reduction can be 
""solved by locating the transmitter on 

Rasnow Peak and placing a repeater in 
the Ventura area to provide coverage 
to the west Ventura and south Santa 
Barbara County areas. 

3) Kramer does not believe that the 
interference addressed by VCC will 
exist because of required power reduc- 
tion from the Rasnow site. 

The possibility of adverse effects on plants 
and animals are environmental concerns. 

The Santa Monica Mountains Conser- 
vancy addressed negative impacts on the 
environmentafter reviewing the radio tower 
SEER. It's March 1992 letter identified a 
need for a more focused study on an endan- 
gered plant called lyon's pentachaeta. 

Interface (the preparers of the SEIR) 
subsequently conducted surveys.which 
identified the occurrence of sensitive plant 
and animal species. Fifteen individual lyon's 
pentachaeta plants were located "outside 
any of the proposed disturbance area," 
according to a report by Jacqueline L. 
Bowland, project manager/senior siologist 
for Interface. The report recommended tem- 
porary fencing around these plants during 
tower construction as a precaution. 

The conservancy suggested that a "de- 
tailed graphic" of the special and topo- 
graphic relationship between the onsite 
lyon's pentachaeta population should be 
included in a Focused Environmental Im- 
pact Report (FEIR.) 

Interface stated in a March 10 letter that 
a map had been submitted to the appropri- 
ate agency and including it with the report 
was beyond their biological obligation or 
necessity. Bowland explained that EIRs 

are "supposed to be geared to the lay 
person; as such," and were not "biological 
reports" and added that the information 
could be provided to a professional. 

Barbara Collins, CLU biology professor 
and author of a book on native vegetation 
in Southern California, has worked re- 
cently with the Santa Monica Mountains 
Conservancy in regard to lyon's 
pentachaeta involvement in a Westlake 
development project. Collins said she was 
not contacted by the conservancy regard- 
ing the proposed Mountclef Ridge tower 
plan, but was aware of the controversy. 

Although she is not familiar with the 
exact location of the planned tower, Collins 
said she has observed a population of two 
endangered plant species on the CLU prop- 
erty in the ridge area, pentachaeta lyonii 
and dudleya parva. 

The possibility of negative impact on 

"many more raptors die from 
collisions with automobiles 
than with wires or towers." 
-Peter Bloom, 
raptor ecologist 

raptors (soaring and hunting birds) is a 
second environmental topic. Bowland 's 
report states that "raptors have exceptional 
eyesight" and it seems unlikely that such 
birds would not see the guy wires or the 
tower. She also slates in the report that 
raptors will actually use the structures for 
"roosting/hawking sites, particularly in con- 
sideration of the lack of trees along the 
ridge line." 

Jerry Thompson of the Raptor Rehabili- 
tation and Release Program presented data 
from the center regarding "injuries and 
disorientation of night-flying migrants from 
large elevated structures , particularly guyed 
RF- radiating towers placed on ridge tops." 

Thompson's report discussed both elec- 
trical and collision hazards, but used ex- 
amples of migrating birds killed by impact 
with the Empire State Building and whoop- 
ing cranes during breeding in Patuxeni, Md. 

Peter H. Bloom, a highly qualified raptor 
ecologist consulted by the City of Thou- 
sand Oaks Department of Planning, also 

presented his expertise on questions re- 
garding raptors. According to his report, 
"the density of nesting raptors in the imme- 
diate two-mile radius around the proposed 
tower site is low." 

He notes that raptors occasionally "col- 
lide with wires, but virtually never collide 
with towers," but many commonly nest on 
towers. He also noted that hundreds of 
raptors are fledged each year from nests 
situated on "high transmission power tow- 
ers and lower voltage power poles" with- 
out significant injury by electrocution. 

Peregrine falcons, according to Bloom, 
are the most likely raptor to collide with 
wires, because they chase pigeons in cities 
where thousand of cross wires exist. He 
commented that he suspects "many more 
raptors die from collisions with automo- 
biles than with wires or towers." 

Bloom concluded, "given the placement 
of the radio tower on a predominantly east 
west-running ridge with low raptor activ- 
ity, in a region of broad frontal migration ... 
it represents a relatively insignificant threat 
to raptors." 

A city council-initiated appeal of the 
planning commission approval of the pro- 
posed KCLU radio tower is pending. In 
February, Councilman Alex Fiore de- 
scribed the issue as one of "balance." 

"We need to balance the needs or the 
residents and of the college," Fiore said. 

The council has gathered the informa- 
tion necessary for that balance. The city's 
cable broadcast consultant has evaluated 
alternatives. The concerns of surrounding 
residents regarding the potential impacts 
of this project have been examined. 

CLU requested a delay on the appeal 
vote in order to re-evaluate alternate an- 
tenna sites. In August, Arthur Lopez, CLU 
director of broadcasting, said two sites 
were being considered. 

While the council postponed making, 
what Fiore called a "rational conclusion," 
the FCC license to construct the campus 
radio station expired. 

Will the FCC grant an extension? Will 
CLU pursue the tower issue further? Will 
there be a city council vote on the appeal? 
Some questions remain unanswered.

Looking to the lucrative film in- 
dustry for a future career, 
college students are constantly 
searching for an opportunity to 
get their foot in the door. 

And with the competition as high as it 
is and the recession at a record low, a 
truly great opportunity may only come 
once in a lifetime. 

So when the opportunity made a stop 
on the CLU campus this summer, drama 
and communication arts students from 
Cal Lutheran and some from other 
universities as far away as Arizona took 

Summer Film Institute 1992, a new 
CLU academic course that debuted this 
summer, put to work six students from 
CLU and four from such universities as 
Arizona State, University of California at 
Los Angeles and Long Beach State on the 
production of "Mike The Detective," a 
short-length feature film shot on the CLU 
campus for two weeks in May and June. 

The movie, an off-beat comedy written 
and developed by Chris Matheson, the 
writer of "Bill and Ted's Excellent 
Adventure" and "Bill and Ted's Bogus 
Journey," stars Shane Black, the screen- 
writer and producer of "Lethal Weapon," 
'Lethal Weapon II" and "The Last Boy 

The hands-on experience class taught 
by Art Lopez, CLU's Communication 
Arts Department chair, gave students 
active roles in all aspects of film-making 
as well as up to three college credits for 
five weeks in May and June. 

"Mike The Detective," a "crazy and 
zany piece," Lopez says, served as the 
classroom for aspiring film students. The 
students worked along with a professional 
cast and film crew to the tune of 10-to- 
12-hour-a-day sets, sometimes all- 
nighters while the movie was being 
filmed on campus. 

"I learned more in these two weeks than 
a lot of people will who are going to film 
school," said Mark McCracken, a senior 
communication arts major who worked 
oh the film by taking Summer Film 

"I feel lucky to have been able to take 
this class." 

"Mike The Detective" was filmed 
almost entirely on the CLU campus — 
the only other location was a desert area 
in Palmdale. Such CLU sites used 
included Kingsman Park, Kramer Court, 
the gymnasium, Nygreen 1, the field 
behind Afton Residence Hall, the 
Equestrian Center, the Little Theatre and 
the outside area between the Student 
Union Building and the gym. 

When the film concluded its shooting 
on the CLU campus, the directors, 
producers and screenwriters of "Mike 
The Detective" met with the class for a 

Big screen 

"Mike The Detective, " a short-length feature 
film shot on cam- 
pus this summer, 

served as the 
classroom for a 
new CLU sum- 
mer course. 
Seven CLU 
students and 
four from such 
universities as 
Arizona State 
and UCLA 
learned the many 
different roles of 
film making in a 

question-and-answer session. Lopez took 
the class to Glen Glenn Sound, a film 
production office in Hollywood, where 
the class was taught more about the post- 
production process of making a film. 

But the thrust of experience was the 
time when the film was being shot at 

The students rotated jobs to get a feel 
for all the different roles in a professional 
movie production. From lighting, camera, 
art, production and even some light 
acting, CLU students had a hand in every 
step of the making of "Mike The Detec- 

McCracken worked mainly with 
assisting the cameramen, changing the 
different filters and loading the camera 
with film. McCracken was also respon- 
sible for logging in all the scenes, and 
keeping track of the number of takes 
using the slate or clapboard. 

Cherylynn Carter, a senior double 
major in communication arts and drama, 
worked with the art setup, costumes, 
wardrobe and makeup. Jennifer 
Goldberg, a 1992 CLU communication 
arts graduate, was involved in the art 
department and set design along with 

"This is something that has been really 

Ch»rlie FWEcho 

fun and exciting ... but very tiring," 
Carter said when asked how to describe 
her experience with the movie. "I know 
that I'm really going to miss (working on) 
this movie when it's over." 

Carter got a chance to show off her four 
years of acting at CLU as she was chosen 
as an extra in the movie. 

Paige Heagerty, who is also an assistant 
to Lopez, served as an assistant to the 
producer. "You could almost say he was 
the production manager at times," Lopez 

Tom Towson, a senior communication 
arts commuter, who plans on graduating 
in December, did some camera work and 
worked with the producers. 

Kathy Kraiger, a 1992 CLU graduate, 
was given the title of assistant to the 
producer. She worked primarily with the 
lighting and sound and got accustomed to 
the many new words that are seemingly a 
creation of the film industry. 

"There were many terms I had to 
learn," Kraiger said. "But everyone was 
willing to explain and was really helpful." 

Besides getting accustomed to the film 
lingo, long and hard hours were other 
aspects that CLU students had to get used 

"I've worked 122 hours in the past 

September 1, 1992 


week-and-a half, more than 12 hours a 
day, " Kraiger said. "It's hard work." 

Not only was it hard work, the class- 
filming was a good opportunity for the 
students to make connections within the 
film industry. And Lopez is one who can 
tell you just how important connections 
in this business really can be. 

Lopez, a 1976 UCLA film school 
graduate, was instrumental in bringing 
"Mike The Detective" onto the CLU 
campus. During his college career and 
after obtaining his degree, Lopez was 
constantly involved in the film industry 
and has made some important, long- 
lasting connections. How important? 

The filming of "Mike The Detective" 
on the CLU campus couldn't have 
happened without them. 

"Ten years ago, I worked with many of 
these people on this set," Lopez said 
during a lunch break on the second-to- 
the-last day of shooting. "I was a profes- 
sional writer, worked as a sound engineer 
... I made a number of connections, 
friends and acquaintances." 

Among those connections, Lopez met 
Lisa Zebro, the producer and co-director 
of "Mike The Detective," and Kay Kerby. 
Lopez met Mattheson, who wrote the 
"Bill and Ted" movies and is making his 
directoral debut in "Mike The Detective," 
through his friend, Zebro. 

"This is something that I've been 
thinking about doing for quite some time 
actually," said Lopez, who worked as the 
sound engineer of "Mike The Detective" 
as well as instructing the class. 

"There are two factors why I wanted to 
start this class: The distance between 
(CLU) and the Los Angeles area and the 
connections that I have within the film 
industry. I know other associates, 
producers and actors (besides those 
involved in "Detective") . . . and the trick 
was to just go after it." 

Lopez's background in the film and 
television industry includes working with 
the show "Simon and Simon" at Univer- 
sal Studios as well as some work with 
Paramount Pictures. Besides these, other 
projects have kept Lopez's career 
extremely active in the film industry for 
16 years. Lopez came to CLU in 1988. 

The movie being filmed on the CLU 
campus is not the only intriguing aspect 
of this movie. The style of this movie is 
both unique and completely out-of- 

So what kind of movie is "Mike The 

Weird, for a lack of a better word. 

Mike, played by actor Shane Black, 
along with his partner Phil, actor Kyle 
Gass, is searching to find a serial killer. 

The two find clues during their search 
and along the way the film presents a 
theme that is comedic, bizarre, even 
dramatic at times.

Gang violence not confined to L.A. 

By Katie Payne 


For years, the residents of 
Thousand Oaks thought the 
gang problem in Southern 
California was confined to Los 
Angeles. After the city's first fatal drive- 
by shooting, residents were hit with the 
realization that gang violence had spread 
into the area. 

Gang violence came to Thousand Oaks 
about three years ago. Many people 
involved in law enforcement felt it would 
lake a life sooner or later. It finally did 
last year. 

Jennifer Jordan, a 20-year-old mother, 
was killed on May 3 1 , 1991 , as she stood 
outside a party on Houston Drive in 
Thousand Oaks. 

She was the city's first drive-by 
shooting victim. On this date, Scott 
Michael Kastan, 19, brought a handgun 
with him as he went cruising with co- 
de fcndent Patrick Strickland, 23. Both 
men were members of one of three 
Thousand Oaks gangs, the Small Town 
Hoods, and had been drinking. 

The men drove to a party on Houston 
Drive where members of a local and rival 
gang, the Houston Hoods, were rumored 
to be attending a birthday party. 

According to testimony from witnesses, 
someone who matched Kastan 's descrip- 
tion stood through the sun roof of the car 
and fired shots. These shots struck and 
killed Jordan. After she was shot, she was 
taken to Los Robles Regional Medical 
Center, where she pronounced dead on 
arrival. During an autopsy, however, her 
body showed markings that emergency 
room physicians had worked to save her. 

Ronald O'Halloran, assistant medical 
examiner for the county of Ventura, said 
that the bullet first entered Jordan's head. 
It then lodged in the front of her brain, 
where it fractured her skull and killed her. 

Kastan attended a party at a Newbury 
Park hotel after the shooting. One witness 
testified he bragged about the incident. 

In February 1992, after three days of 
jury deliberation, Kastan was found 
guilty of shooting Jordan. He was also 
found guilty on two counts of attempted 
murder for shooting at Wallid Haddad 
and Nick Uglesich, who had been 
standing outside the party on Houston 
Drive. The men were not hurt; the shots 
instead hit the truck they were getting 

On March 31, Kastan was sentenced to 
29 years-to-life for murderand illegal use 
of a firearm. He also received 1 1 years 
for one attempted murder charge. As the 
charges were read, Kastan showed no 
reaction. He also received a three-year 
term for a previous drive-by shooting he 
had pleaded guilty to. 

Kastan will not be eligible for parole 
until he serves 20 years of his term. The

First drive-by shooting triggers concern 
from T.O. city officials and residents 

According to Deputy District Attorney 
Don Glenn, the parole board will not 
even consider a bid for release unless 
Kastan admits he committed the crime. 
His lawyer, James Blatt, says Jordan's 
death should send a message to the city 
and other communities to help keep 
youths away from gangs. 

Kastan maintained in court that he did 
not shoot Jordan. He did, however, 
apologize to her family and said he 
wished he could bring her back. He said 
Jordan's death is something that he will 
have to live with forever. 

Even though Strickland was in the car 
when the shots were fired, jurors said he 
did not know Kastan was going to shoot 
anyone, nor did he plan the shooting. 
Strickland was acquitted on counts of 
first-degree and second-degree murder, 
and attempted murder. He was, however, 
convicted of being an accessory to the 
three shootings and faces up to four years 
in prison. 

Strickland also faces assault charges for 
the Jan. 7, 1991, shooting of a rival gang 
member. The shooting, which took place 
on Thousand Oaks Boulevard, struck 
Raoul Caceres in the arm while he was 
sitting in a car. According to Strickland's 
lawyer, he is no longer a member of the 

Perhaps the greatest victim of all in this 
shooting is Jordan's 2-year-old daughter, 
Allison. Jordan's sister and brother-in- 
law, Jaime and Gene Gregor, have been 
raising the girl. Jordan's boyfriend, Greg 
Figueroa, is fighting for custody of their

Allison will be affected when she gets 
older. She said that Allison knows her 
mother is dead and that she is just a 

Kastan 's family believes he is innocent. 
His parents attended much of the trial but 
were not present for his sentencing. 
Kastan 's attorney, James Blatt, said they 
are suffering enormously. 

According to Randy Pentis, a gang 
specialist for the East Valley Sheriffs 
Station, Jordan's death was the incident 
that brought about the awareness of the 
gang problem in Thosand Oaks. 

William Wade, commander of the East 
Valley Sheriff's Station's , predicted 
there will be an increase in robberies in 
1993. He also predicted a slight rise in 
theft and burglary for the year. Residen? 
tial burglary also remains a problem since 
60 percent of reported burglaries result 
from people leaving their homes un- 

Contrary to what many believe, T.O. 
gang members are not necessarily from 
Los Angeles or the San Fernando Valley. 
Instead, they are mostly residents of the 
area. Amy Siegel, a crime reporter for 
the Thousand Oaks News Chronicle, said 

Gang cases from all over

courts more than ever before 

in 1992. Prosecutors say this 

trend will increase in 1993...

Gang cases from all over Ventura 
County filled the courts more than ever 
before in 1992. Prosecutors say this trend 
will increase in 1993. Vince O'Neil, chief 
deputy district attorney, said prosecutors 
estimated that 70 to 80 percent of cases 
handled by the district attorney office's 
Juvenile Unit were gang related. 

Last year, the office handled 32 gang 
crimes that were felonies involving 38 
adult defendants. Last October, the 
district attorney's office assigned a 

second full-time prosecutor to gang- 
related cases involving adults. 

There are three gangs in Thousand 
Oaks. One is TOCAS, which stands for 
Thousand Oaks California Sur(South), 
the Houston Hoods and the Small Town 
Hoods. The total number of gang 
members in the area is about 250, 40 of 
whom are considered by police. to be 
hardcore. Pentis said people often ask 
him for a description of the typical gang 
member, but he said one does not exist. 

Members of the TOCAS are primarily 
Hispanic, but there are members of other 
races as well. The Houston Hoods and the 
Small Town Hoods on the other hand are 
more racially mixed. Ages of the gangmem- 
bers range from 1 3 to 22 or 23. The median 
age is 16 or 17. 

Siegel feels the most dangerous age for 
gang members is 17 or 18 because it is at 
this point in his opinion that kids act care- 

According to Ventura County Deputy 
District Attorney Peter Brown, the older 
age means a greater access to guns and cars. 

The boyfriend of Kastan's mother had a 
.38-caliber revolver. Kastan admitted in 
court he was fascinated with the gun and 
that he would look at it, check if it was 
loaded and play with it. 

Pentis said there are not many new mem- 
bers joining gangs and there has been the

On first inspection, the CLU music 
facilities may cause some students to ig- 
nore or underrate the music program. But 
one must look deeper to see the real heart 
of the department — the teachers. 

Besides being honored with five tal- 
ented, performing music instructors, CLU 
also has 12 part-time teachers who are 
well-experienced in the music field. With 
a knowledgeable and helpful staff of pro- 
fessionals such as this, CLU has become a 
breeding ground for fine musicians. 

The attitude of the CLU Music Depart- 
ment for the past 25 years has been to 
guide its students to bigger and better 
things . . . regardless of the facilities. 

The Music Department facilities have 
been spread out across campus with build- 
ings here and there, making rehearsals and 
instruction complicated. The main re- 
hearsal room, K- 1 , is across campus from 
the music headquarters and piano practice 
rooms. The only other facility the depart- 
ment can claim is perhaps the gymnasium. 

Despite the poor facilities of the past 25 
years, CLU music students have gone on 
to become famous performers, Academy- 
Award-winning movie and TV writers, 
music teachers and musicians. 

Many of the student music groups have 
gone on tour around the United States, 
playing to audiences other than CLU "stu- 

The CLU Choir is well known interna- 
tionally from tours abroad. Students have 
the opportunity to perform as well as sight- 
see while singing gospel music. 


Eric Berg, a 1992 CLU graduate who 
went on a CLU choir tour last year, put it 
this way: "What could be belter than travel- 
ing in Europe and the Holy Land while 
singing and having a good time?" 

In addition to choir, CLU's other music 
groups include Wings, 'he Concert Band, 
Orchestra and the Jazz Band, all of which 
often have guest appearances by profes- 

Students taking private lessons are re- 

"This is because of our superb faculty, 
which is always there for the students, en- 
abling the students to get to know their 
teachers on a first-name basis." 

Greg Wallace, a member of last year's 
choir group, commented, "I can wander 
into the music building anytime and talk 
with the professors; it's really easy to get to 
know them, unlike at a large university." 

The students and teachers perform to- 
gether and build bonds that often continue 

Music staff top-notch;

invaluable experience as the student learns 
to control nervousness and stage-fright

Some students don't like recital, but al- 
most all agree that it helps them perform 
better in front of an audience. 

With all the positive experiences between 
the music students and faculty involved, the 
fact that the Music Department is desperate 
for better facilities is, at times, overlooked. 

"I think that the CLU Music Department 
is the finest in the western part of the United 
States," said Dr. Dorothy Schechter, chair 
of the department. " We may not have USC s 
facilities, but the experience we give our 
students is deeper and more rewarding. 

years after graduation. Another advantage 
is being able to take beginning lessons in a 
classroom setting or private lessons straight 
from the professor, not from an assistant 
like at some schools. 

CLU professors are always working on 
projects. Elmer Ramsey, a professor who 
retired last year, has released several al- 
bums and Schechter has a new classical 
piano piece coming out on compact disc 
this year. 

In an attempt to pass on their successes as 
performers and teachers, CLU music fac- 
ulty members use a variety of styles and 
techniques when leaching music students. 

'Teaching style is different is different 
with every student," Schechter said. "It's 
almost like being a psychologist trying to 

figure out the best way to teach a new 

"The main thing is encouragement. It is so 
vital because the student is under stress 
from all sorts of things, and it's easy for 
them to cut themselves down. 

"I find the best way to teach is to get them 
into a routine and focus their talents." 

But the facilities problem rears its ugly 
head again. 

"It's sad when you have students with 
talent who deserve more than second-class 
facilities," Schechter says. "We are here for 
the students and, as professors, we would 
like to see the students with the facilities 
they deserve. 

"Although I would like to thank the ad- 
ministration for the recent rehearsal room, 
I won't quit until I see more." 

After graduation, music students go into 
all areas of work. Some go into ministry, 
others go into the music business or teach- 
ing, still others go into composing for the 
entertainment business. 

The Music Department is not just for 
music majors, it's for any CLU student who 
wants to broaden his or her musical hori- 

It is a place get first-rate attention from 
the staff and learn what they want to learn 
whether it's pop, jazz, classical or other 
types of music. 

The CLU Music Department gets better 
every year. Recently new keyboards, a com- 
puter and compact disc players have been 
added to the facilities. 

Although the small little blue music 
house, which is the music headquarters, 
may not look like much, you would be 
surprised what could be learned there.

By Jay Ashkinos 


All right So you just arrived at Cal 
Lutheran as a new student, but you're still 
not completely sold. Of course you seek a 
good education, and you will find that at 
CLU, but (like most college students around 
the world) you also want your college years 
to be a time of fun and life-long memories. 
This may lead you to doubt if a small school 
like CLU can accommodate a lust for ad- 

This may be true (there's only so much 
you can do on a campus smaller than a 
shopping mall parking lot), but Cal Lutheran 
beats in the heart of Southern California, a 
land of fun under the soothing sun. 
Forstarters, the renowned Califomiacoast 
line, overflpwing with its many breathtak- 
ing beaches, is only 30 minutes away. Tan 
in the sand, swim in the surf, play on La 
Playa . . . it's absolutely free. From Venice 
to Malibu to Santa Barbara, the best beaches 
are in the Golden State. 

From burning sand to icy snow, CLU is 
just a hop, skip and a jump away from good 
skiing. Slopemasters need only to travel a 
couple of hours to Wrightwood. From there, 
Mountain High , one of the most popular sk i 
resorts, is only three miles away. 

Mountain High has two mountains with 
19 miles of ski runs (25 percent for novice, 
50 percent for intermediate and 25 percent 

for advanced skiing). 

Only three hours from CLU rests the 
mountain town of Big Bear, where one has 
the choice of two major California slopes: 
Snow Summit and Bear' Mountain. Snow 
Summit offers 17 miles of ski runs (35 
percent for novice, 35 percent for interme- 
diate and 30 percent for advanced skiing), 
while Bear Mountain is a favorite of many 
California skiers (30 percent for novice, 40 
percent for intermediate and 30 percent for 
advanced skiing). 

Most lift tickets are in the $25 to $35 
range, but most ski resorts offer student 
discounts (education pays in more ways 
than one). 

If you dig sports and entertainment, wel- 
come to one of the most competitive cities 
in the world. All of the major sports (base- 
ball, football, basketball and hockey) thrive 
in Los Angeles and are very close to CLU. 
Baseball fans can catch a game at Dodger 
Stadium as CLU is only an hour away from 
exciting Dodger baseball and grilled 
"Dodger dogs" — both of which have gained 
legendary status. 

Anaheim Stadium showcases two sports 
teams: the California Angels (baseball) and 
the Los Angeles Rams (football). The "Big 
A" is only two hours away and well worth 
the visit 

There's one more football team in South- 
ern California and it calls its home the Los 
Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The team is 

the Los Angeles Raiders. The silver and 
black. The winningest team in professional 
sports history. The Coliseum played host to 
the Olympics in 1984. 

But literally only paces away from the 
Coliseum is the L.A. Sports Arena, which 
plays host to the up-and-coming pro basket- 
ball team, the Los Angeles Clippers. 

The Lakers, the more famous of the two 
Southern California pro hoop teams, plays 
at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood, 
which is less than an hour away from Thou- 
sand Oaks. This is a team that has boasted 
such greats as Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem 
Abdul-Jabbar and Earvin "Magic" John- 

The Los Angeles Kings, a pro hockey 
team, also plays at the Forum. Here you can 
see the "Great One," Wayne Gretzky, shat- 
ter opponents with his unmatched talent. 
The Kings are the hottest ticket in town 
these days, and a trip to a Kings' game is a 
must for hockey fans. 

Tickets to sporting events range from 
under $10 (for baseball games) to $18 to 
$30 (for basketball and hockey) to $25 to 
$40 (for football). Prices can go much higher 
if your wallet speaks a wealthy language. 
These arenas, along with such great enter- 
tainment houses as the Pacific Amphithe- 
ater, the Hollywood Bowl, Irvine Meadows 
Amphitheater and the Long Beach Arena, 
all play host to the biggest concert tours in 
the world. No one skips past Southern Cali-

Also, in just a couple of hours, you will 
reach the Magic Kingdom of Disneyland. 
From the culture-gathering music of "It's a 
Small World" to the mountain adventure of 
the "Matterhorn" to the futuristic frenzy of 
"Space Mountain," Disneyland is a place 
for people of all ages. A place where dreams 
come true and everyone is a kid. 
Minutes from Disneyland is Knott's Berry

their lunch, Knott's offers such belly-drop- 
ping rides as the "Corkscrew" and 
"Montezuma's Revenge." 

Only an hour away stands the mighty Six 
Flags Magic Mountain, home of "Colos- 
sus," one of the boldest roller coasters in the 
world. Other wild rides include "Viper," 
"Revolution," "Freefall," "Roaring Rap- 
ids," "Ninja" and "Gold Rush." 

You have to see and ride them to believe 
how awesome they are. 

So, what's to do in the Southern Califor- 
nia surroundings of CLU? The question 
should be, what's not to do?

same core members for three years. How- 
ever, attorney Joseph Lax says there is a lot 
of peer pressure to join gangs in order to 
prove one's manhood. 

Pentis and Wade believe that the outlook 
for crimes committed by gangs this year 
will depend on what happens in the commu- 
nity and in the courts. 

Successes and failures in court prosecu- 
tions are factors in future gang violence. 

They said residents must not tolerate gang 
crime; they must report crimes and be will- 
ing to testify in court. 

Several factors have kept gang violence 
to a minimum. Pentis said that the city of 
Thousand Oaks and the school district real- 
ized the gang problem right away. 

Schools are learning how to deal with 
crime by being aware of what is happening 
on campus and by working with deputies. 

Concerning awareness of gang activity, 
some people have criticized the media for 
covering gang violence because they be- 
lieve that it glorifies the actions of gang 

One positive aspect of the media cover- 
age is that it creates a picture of conse- 
quences for gang members. 

Gang sweeps may also help curb vio- 
lence. In a sweep last June, five alleged 
gang members were arrested. Guns, knives 

and other gang paraphernalia, including 
Nazi flags, were found. 

Thousand Oaks Mayor Frank Schillo has 
accompanied Wade on a search and said 
the arrests show how serious the City Coun- 
cil is about responding to gang violence. 

Another way that gang violence can be 
lessened is prevention. Last summer, the 
Ventura County Sheriffs Department be- 
gan sending letters to parents. These letters 
informed them that their juvenile children 
had been identified by law enforcement 
officers as being at risk of becoming a gang 

Neighborhood Watch programs may help 
as well. City and police officials hope that 
such programs can help alleviate the num- 
ber of crimes that occur in the city. 

Siegel feels that gang activity is "pretty 
quiet now." 

She added that a lot of the more danger- 
ous gang members are in jail instead of 
being on the streets. Seigel said, "I think 
it'll be quiet for a while."

"There were many times when the whole 
crew would crack up," Lopez said. "It's 
really, really nutty. 

"It's a spoof on the detective genre . . . It's 
one of those kind of movies that's hard to 
explain. You have to see it for yourself." 

Another bizarre scene pairs Mike and his 

12-year-old girlfriend — yes, 12 — in front 
of CLU's gazebo in Kingsman park ... the 
girl is murdered by an invisible man. 

Do you get the idea? 

"It's like a joke, I can't explain it ... I 
would have to tell the whole thing to you," 
Lopez concluded. "It's best to just see itand 
figure it out for yourself." 

This was the first year of CLU Summer

summer, according to Lopez. Next year's 
project has not yet been slated.

get of $100,000, should run about 70 min- 
utes long and will premiere at film festivals 
in a month. 


Gang problems are alive and well in Thou- 
sand Oaks. The feeling of the East Valley 
Sheriff s Department and those experts who 
follow gang activity closely is that the mea- 
sures that are being taken to keep the vio- 
lence to a minimum will work. 

Meanwhile, Thousand Oaks residents can 
only hope that the tragic death of Jennifer 
Jordan will not be the first of many to come.

Thousand Oaks: Quiet and country-like 

By Karen Struck 


Thousand Oaks. It sounds more like a 
description of a country setting than a 
surburban city. Lying at the most southeast 
part of Ventura County, Thousand Oaks 
has features of both busy, bustling Los 
Angeles (40 miles to the east) as well as 
some of the quieter, more country-like fea- 
tures offered because of the natural bound- 
aries of the surrounding mountains. 

The city was named in the 1920s by a 14- 
year-old boy in a school contest For nam- 
ing the city he won $5 . . . and he didn't have 
to count the trees. 

Evidence suggests Thousand Oaks was 
inhabited originally more than 3000 years 
ago by the Chumash Indians, a tribe known 
for its ability to make frameless canoes, 
which provided a more sophisticated means 
of trading and fishing than other tribes in 
the area. Later, in 1542, the region was 
claimed by Spanish explorers. 

The area and the rest of California be- 
came a territory of the United States during 
the Mexican War in 1848. In 1875, the first 
post office was established in Newbury 
Park. As recently as 1958, there were still 
only 2000 residents. 

The rapid growth of the city came in the

1950s with the construction of the 101 
Freeway. In a mere 15 years, the population 
grew to 68,000. Today, there are just over 
104,000 residents in the 55 square miles 
(34,000 acres) the city encompasses. 

It is no surprise that the word of the 
beauty of Thousand Oaks would be spread 
as soon as the area became more accessible. 
Some of the qualities a lifestyle in Thou- 
sand Oaks permits are not available in most 
other Southern California cities because of 
high smog levels, crime, crowding or lack 
of easily accessible recreational activities. 

Not so in Thousand Oaks. Safety, clean 
air and open space abound. 

The city, at its elevation of 900 feet, is 
part of the Conejo Valley, an area nestled in 
the Santa Monica Mountains. It is this moun- 
tain chain and the breeze from the Pacific 
Ocean only 12 miles away that give way to 
the clean air and significantly lower smog 
levels that designate Thousand Oaks as one 
of the more ideal locations in Southern 
California. While all of the lower counties 
in the state can boast wonderful weather 
and plenty of sunshine, rare is the commu- 
nity here that can also boast clean air. 

The mean annual temperature is between 
55 and 77 degrees. The average rainfall is 
10.62 inches and humidity is 52 percent. 

When the city was incorporated in 1964, 
the planning included a very specific com- 
munity development plan. Forecasting the 
amount of growth the city would undergo, 
the planners sought to preserve the features 
that make the style of living very attractive 
and inviting. 

In 1977, Thousand Oaks and the Conejo 
Recreation and Parks Department formed a 
joint-powers agreement for the manage- 
ment and coordination of open space areas. 
This group, known as the Conejo Open 

Space Conservancy Agency, manages about 
14,000 acres of open space and trails. These 
open spaces encompass more than 70 acres 
of hiking trails. 

Tom Sorenson, the administrator of City 
Parks and Planning, explains that with the 
joint arrangement "developmental rights 
were given up. The area will always be open 
space and will be preserved as a natural 

In addition to these open spaces, the city 
has a very active Parks and Recreation 
Department that maintains some 30 parks 
developed for family use. The 1700-acre 
Wildwood Park, one of the city's largest 
recreation areas, is inhabited by more than 
60 species of birds, 22 species of reptiles 
and amphibians and 37 species of mam- 
mals. The city also has five golf courses, a 
35-acre botanical garden, many theaters 
and playhouses, an art museum and a re- 
cently developed area that houses the mod- 
em Teen Center, the library and the Senior 

When the FBI released its crime statistics 
for 1991 , Thousand Oaks was rated as the 
safest city in the country for those with a 
population over 100,000. Brad Hansen of 
the Ventura County Sheriffs Department 
coordinates the crime prevention plan of 
the city. He describes the factors that make 
the area so much safer than surrounding 
communities: "The City Council works very 
closely with the sheriffs department to 
keep crime rates down. The recommenda- 
tions have been very well received. We 
design out problems that cause increased 

For example, when plans are submitted 
to the Planning Commission, they are evalu- 
ated for factors that could increase crimes 
such as burglaries. The city has building 

security ordinances that imposed certain, 
conditions on the building, explains Hansen. 
"We might recommend certain types of 
locks or recommend that they not use a 
certain type of window." 

Some of the other features include a re- 
striction on underground parking facilities 
and an absence of alleyways behind homes. 
"This alleviates the possibilities of crimes 
of a transitory nature," Hansen says. 

Thousand Oaks has had a commitment to 
ecology for some time, but recently the city 
began a city wide recycling program, which 
is in use in residential areas only. As 
Grahame Watts, the recycling coordinator 
explains, "Right now 1 5 percent of the trash 
is being diverted. Our goal is 25 percent, but 
we will need commercial involvement to 
reach this. Ten percent is considered good, 
so at 15 percent, we're doing very good." 

The program is funded through the city's 
solid waste management funds and indi- 
vidual rubbish bills. 

As the name of tile city implies, Thou- 
sand Oaks is covered with ancient oak trees 
that provide a distinct character. The City 
Council, in recognizing this, passed several 
ordinances for their protection so that resi- 
dents cannot disturb a tree without a perm it. 
The beautiful, oak-covered hills of Thou- 
sand Oaks should be protected for all the 
city's residents to enjoy for a long time to 
come ... all 2383 of them.

Well, you can stop gritting your teeth and 
biting your nails. Many of the questions and 
fears thai you're more than likely feeling 
are quite common ... How will I manage 
without my old friends? Will I be able to 
make new friends easily? Where do I meet 
people? Will they like me? What if I ... 

Unless you are unusually outgoing, these 
are probably issues that you're taking just 
as seriously as your (first — Ha, Ha!) major, 
and with good reason. After all, college 
isn 'l all lectures, books and homework (you 
may want to challenge me on this during 
finals) — in fact, it is far from it. If you're 
like many college students, a large portion 
of the reason you came to Cal Lutheran is 
for — say it with me — "the college experi- 
ence." As cliche as it may sound, learning 
how to relate to many different people, 
making new friends and discovering and 
pursuing your. interests will compromise 
most of your time in and your memories of 

One of the easiest, most fun ways to give 
your collegiate social life a smooth start is 
to join one of the many clubs on campus. 
Besides the numerous musical and dra- 
matic ensembles or athletic teams that you 
may decide to take pan in, there are more 
than 20 other student organizations that 
may provide you with just what you're 
looking for. 

In the fall, shortly after you've learned all 
your roommates' names, where all (well, 
most) of your classes are and spotted that 
drop-dead-gorgeous person across the 
crowded cafeteria, the annual club fair will 
be held in Kingsman Park. Along with 
music and refreshments, each campus orga- 
nization will have represeniatives eager to 
meet you and answer any questions. 

Below is a list of this year's CLU clubs. 

African American Student Association 
(AASA). Open to all students, the purpose 
of the AASA, as according to its constitu- 
tion, is to "pursue the study of Black thought 
and culture, and its part in the thought and 
culture of America and the rest of the world." 
The club is very active in building aware- 
ness during Black History Month (date?), 
in which it sponsors a cultural fair and art 
exhibit. AASA also sponsors occasional 
campus dances and hosts student forums in 
which it sometimes invites guest speakers 
to confront racial issues. The group is known 
for its annual variety show. 

One of the favorite activities of the club is 
meeting with similar organizations from 
other colleges and universities in the South- 
ern California area. 

"It gives us a chance to meet new people 
and to share and learn new ideas," said 
Dawn Best, a club representative of A AS A. 

Asian American Association. Entering 
its third year, this club was formed to boost 
cultural awareness around campus about 
Asian cultures, as well as to provide more 
opportunities for interaction between 

American and international students. Past 
activities include trips to local fun spots like 
Venice Beach, a Korean/Chinese/Thai cook- 
out for CLU faculty members, attending 
television tapings and sharing traditions 
during holidays. The club hopes to begin 
the tradition of holding campus-wide fes- 
tivities to celebrate the Chinese New Year. 

"We have a good group," said AAA Presi- 
dent Thai Tran. "The organization is even 
more popular with the increasing numbers 
of Asian students on campus. We really 
encourage more people to join us." 

Church Council/Lord of Life. Lord of 
Life provides a friendly, non-threatening 
Christian environment where students can 
get involved with campus ministry. The 
council is the elected governing body for 
the campus congregation. There are many 
activities you may chose to take part in, 
including Sunday night study breaks, weekly 
Bible studies, Christian music concerts, 
forums confronting issues concerning glo- 
bal peace and justice, volunteering at local 
homeless shelters or soup kitchens and 
weekend retreats. 

Clean Beach Society (CBS). Formerly 
known as the Wave Riders Association, 
this club's main purpose is to raise aware- 
ness about the importance of taking care of 
the Earth's beaches as well as to actively 
take part in the cleaning of beaches in our 

Last year's club went on several beach 
clean-ups and played an active role in Earth 
Day activities. Open to all beach enthusi- 

asts, a typical beach-cleaning day concludes 
with a "few hours of surfing, boogie board- 
ing or just laying out," said Steve Armes, a 
'92 CLU graduate and last year's co-presi- 
dent along with senior Charlie Flora. 

"If you don't know how to surf, we'll 
teach you if you want to learn." 

CBS is currently looking for a new leader 
to lead the club through the '92-93 school 

Communication Arts Association 
(CAA). If you're interested in the fast- 
paced field of communications, this group 
is for you. The club, while attending studio 
tapings and other entertaining events, also 
attempts to help educate by bringing speak- 
ers to campus of various careers within the 

CAA also tries to provide hands-on expe- 
rience with activities such as broadcasting 
and has been involved with the operation 
and promotion of KCLU, the campus radio 

-Dance Team. If you've got the moves, 
then get into the groove with CLU's Regal 
Dancers. After auditions this fall (date?), ' 
the group engages in fast-paced modem 
and jazz dance to wow the crowds at cam- 
pus events 1 ike basketball games and Home- 
corn ing Coronation. 

Democratic Club. Most active during 
important campaigns, this club has been 
around for 10 years. All students are to meet 
and discuss political issues, attend demo- 
cratic functions and pos—

Dorms offer education through experience 

By Janeen Hagerty 


In the search for the perfect college, one 
of the biggest concerns of all students is the 
quality of the housing. Many college stu- 
dents don't realize how much time they will 
actually spend in their rooms and how bad 
the dorms are at some colleges. 

Compared to most universities, CLU's 
housing has a lot to offer. 

Parent reactions never fail when they see 
their son or daughter's dorm for the first 
time at CLU. Their reaction usually goes 
something like this: 

"Look at all the space you have! You even 
have your own living room and your own 
bathroom. I remember the days when I was 
I in college. You had to walk five miles 
uphill in the snow to even find a bathroom." 

Well, maybe it's not that extreme, but 
housing at some colleges does pale in com- 
parison to the housing at CLU. 

Probably the thing that CLU students 
value most about the housing here are the 
private bathrooms. Many dorms at other 
schools are set up so that several dozen 
people share a community bathroom. 
Another advantage of the CLU housing is 
the unusual amount of living space mat 
students have in most of the dorms. Exclud- 
ing Mountclef Residence Hall — an entirely 
freshman dorm — each dorm room or suite 

consists of a common living area, two bed- 
rooms and a full bathroom . These dorms are 
shared four students — two in a room. 

If freshmen aren't in Mountclef, they are 
stationed in Pederson. Both these dorms are 
on the east side of the campus, along with 
Thompson, which hosts transfers and up- 

Pederson and Thompson, both recently 
restored, are identical. Both are two levels 
and contain 33 suites situated around an 
outdoor quad area. 

Living in these dorms is like living in a 
fishbowl. It is very easy to get to know 
people because of the openness of the build- 

Camilla Unsgaard, a transfer student from 
Europe, said she likes living in Thompson 
for this very reason. 

"It's a very friendly environment," says 
Unsgaard. "It was very easy for me to meet 
people because all I had to do was walk 
outside my door." 

Mountclefs rooms are set up with two 
bedrooms and a bathroom that com prise the 
suite. The bathroom and a walk-in closet 
connect the two bedrooms and are shared 
by four students. 

These suites are inside the building, which 

is an advantage to freshmen because they 

can get to know new people on their floor. 

Mountclef is also referred to as "the 

ghetto." It is the oldest dorm on campus and 

some freshmen claim it may not be the 
cleanest, but definitely the "funnesL" 

Some lucky sophomores and all juniors 
and seniors living on campus are eligible to 
live on the west end of campus in the Old 
West and New West residence halls. 

Old West is the quieter of the two halls 
and also has housing options that New West 
does not have. 

Students can choose from a loft-style room 
or a traditional suite with a sunken living 
room. Old West also offers a few suites with 
balconies and bathtubs. 

There are four buildings that comprise 
Old West: Conejo, Afton, Janss and 
Rasmussen. Each of these halls has 1 1 suites. 
Old West tends to attract a lot of seniors 
who want a quieter living atmosphere. 

"People are a lot more mellow (in Old 
West)," said Mark Marius, who was a Resi- 
dent Assistant (R.A) in Rasmussen last 
year. "They're a lot more in control." 

New West is newer and some years, a 
little more lively than Old West. New West 
is comprised of North, South, West and 
East Halls. These halls surround a sand 
volleyball court, which is occupied most 
hours of the day. East is the newest dorm on 
campus. It is primarily a senior dorm. 

"East is great," said senior Paul Schaff. 
"It's definitely worth the wait." 

Incoming freshmen and transfers do not 
get to participate in the housing lottery in 

May. Students are given points according 
to their class rank. Seniors are awarded four 
points, juniors three and sophomores two. 
The lottery then assigns students to the 
dorm for which they are eligible. 

Most students can specify which dorm 
and even what room number they want The 
housing lottery does all it can to accommo- 
date student housing requests. 

The resident directors and advisers plan 
as many dorm events to provide a friendly 
environment and well-deserved study 
breaks. Students in Thompson and Pederson 
enjoy barbecues and ice cream socials in the 
quad areas. 

The quad areas also serve as good places 
for playing games, such as "The Dating 
Game. " Each hall is equipped with a lounge 
that serves as a meeting place for many 
students — a socializing area. 

Mountclef has the most-used quad of all 
the east-side dorms as it plays host to a large 
TV set and the campus radio station, KCLU. 
Regardless of the differences between the 
dorms, what is gained out of the experience 
is similar. 

Andrea Geiger, a transfer student, said 
she has gained a lot from residence life at 

"My roommates and I have become so 
close; we have the best lime together, and at 
the same time, we are learning to share, 
compromise and not kill each other."

sibly gain an opportunity for governmental 
internships. Its hope is to build awareness 
and interest among students about minority 
and women's issues as well as othercurrent 
and important social issues. 

Drama Club. For those interested in dra- 
matic arts, this club is involved in support- 
ing CLU's Drama department. The club 
takes part in many activities, including help- 
ing with campus productions, constructing 
a float for the Homecoming parade and 
organizing the annual Drama Awards Ban- 

Environmental Concerns. This club 
welcomes all students who have great con- 
cerns about the future of the earth and want 
to play a part in preserving its precious 
resources. The club, which was instrumen- 
tal in developing the campus recycling sys- 
tem, meets to discuss environmental issues 
and helps in organizing Earth Day activi- 

Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FC A). 
Although this group was originally formed 
to provide student-athletes with a positive 
peer group in which to nurture Christian 
growth and service, FCA welcomes every- 
one interested in fellowship. 

Weekly meetings usually include a scrip- 
ture lesson given by a student or a guest 
from die Adult Chapter of FCA, sharing of 
feelings and experiences, refreshments, a 
video or games and occasionally a guest 
speaker. Activities include retreats, sports 
outings, mission projects, conferences with 
affiliate schools and group church services. 
French Club. This is the only language 
clubon campus (if you speak another tongue, 
try your hand at establishing another one) 


and is open to anyone interested in the 
French culture. Activities include attending 
French movies, plays and restaurants, 
French cooking and the club has even been 
known to sell holiday Carol -o-Grams, where 
the members sing French carols and deliver 

Habitat for Humanity. Habitat is a non- 
profit organization that works to provide 
housing for low-income families. 

The CLU chapter gives students a chance 
to donate their time, along with caring 
people, to eliminate poverty housing in the 
area. Members work in cooperation with 
families to build or renovate houses with 
the use of volunteer labor and donated sup- 

Inter-Residence Hall Council (IRHC). 
IRHC is open to anyone living on campus 
and its purpose is for residents to get in- 
volved with their hall. Offices and hall 
representatives are elected, but anyone can 
attend meetings and be a part of the council . 
IR«C works closely with the Office of 
Residence Life to sponsor activities like 
hall socials, the annual "Turkey Hunt," 
Alcohol Awareness Week, "Spring Fling," 
and the distribution of exam-week care 
packages. The club provides an easy way to 
meet people and create a more home-like 
atmosphere for you and your fellow resi- 

Latin American Student Association 
(LASO). Open to everyone, LASO was 
originally formed to provide a "family-type 
atmosphere to help minority students feel 
more at home," said club representative 
Constantino Lopez. Open to all students, 
the club hopes to encourage more interac- 
tion as well as cultural awareness. LASO is 
very involved with CLU's cultural aware- 
ness week, Festival de Enquentros, during 
which students can enjoy Latin American 
speakers, actors, musicians, artists, and of 

course ... food. 

Another focus of the group is to interact 
with the community by promoting the im- 
portance of university education among 
minorities in area high schools and working 
with area business leaders to help raise 
money and open doors for student intern- 

Music Club. Don't be fooled. This club is 
not just for music majors or performers. If 
you consider yourself a music lover, this 
club is for you. The club was formed to give 
all music-loving students an opportunity to 
share their interests and talents as well as 
to see some great concerts and shows. 

Proposed activities include holding a used 
record sale, performing and singing 
ValentineGrams, attending local vocal and 
instrumental concerts, as well as trips to see 
the Los Angeles Philharmonic and musi- 
cals like "The Phantom of die Opera." 

Psychology Club. For all those inter- 
ested in the workings of die human mind, 
this club, popular among majors, takes part 
in both entertaining and educational activi- 
ties, including attending lectures; conduct- 
ing its annual compatibility scale which 
matches students, according to question- 
naire, to that "special someone;" and pre- 
sentations such as Professor Kirk Gable's 
"uplifting" one on the power of hypnotism. 

Rotaract. This group is a student service 
organization whose purpose is to help oth- 
ers in need. Among die many projects 
Rotaract has undertaken in die past: a trip to 
Mexico in which it helped to construct 
churches and other buildings, a "mystery 
bus trip," a chili cook-off and participating 
in the annual Conejo Valley Days. 

Student Alumni Association (SAA). 
This exciting new club was formed to help 
CLU students, past and present, to use their 
college ties to their fullest advantage. Sadly, 
some college graduates have lost touch 

entirely with their alma mater. SAA's pur- 
pose is to make sure that there will always 
be a bridge between students and alumni. 

All students, from freshmen to seniors, 
are invited to join SAA and take advantage 
of networking opportunities, exposure to 
alums who can help, learning leadership 
skills or simply to meet some really great 

SAA helps with Alumni Association ac- 
tivities (Homecoming, football game hotdog 
stands, phonathons) and in turn.CLU alumni 
help SAA members. To raise money, SAA 
also plans to organize fundraisers (buttons, 
keychains, halftime competitions) that pro- 
mote school spirit. 

Ski Club. You thought it was all 
waterskiing in California? Think again. 
Quite a few downhill skiing enthusiasts 
inhabit the CLU campus, and if you're one 
of them, join the Ski Club for trips to the 
best spots in the state, as well as other areas, 
like die club's recent jaunt to the slopes of 

United Students of the World (USW). 
There isn't anyone who doesn't belong in 
this club, which is open to all students. Its 
goal is to bring together foreign and Ameri- 
can students to create an awareness of and 
appreciation of different cultures. 

USW sponsors many educational activi- 
ties including speaker forums as well as 
social gatherings where students can get to 
know each other and share stories of their 
hom eland. 

Like all the other campus clubs, you will 
certainly meet a frjendly, interesting mix of 
people through USW and you may just pick 
up a new custom or tradition as well. 

If you need more information or need to 
contact a club representative before arriv- 
ing on campus, contact Sally Schillachi, 
director of campus activities, at (805) 493- 

First day of school predictions: Wake up, eat 
breakfast, get in car and run over a skateboarder 

Jay Ashkinos 

I predict my first day of school to be 
like this: 
After a restless night due in part to 
a fear of summer's end and excitement of a 
new year of school, I wake up three m inutes 
before my alarm is programmed to go off (I 
hate that). As I lurch into the shower, I take 
a moment to scream some of my favorite 
curse words at the nice people who used all 
the hot water. 

I fight die cold just long enough to wash 
parts most vital to me and then step out to an 
onrush of cold air that sweeps across my 

body. Things are not looking good. 

Of course, by then, my alarm is blaring 
(forgot to turn it off) some overplayed top 
40 ballad thai once again reminds me of the 
sad state society is in. I slip into some 
clothes that I consider to be cool, because 
everybody wants to look cool at CLU on 
day one (dun?). 
Did I mention that I have thrown my clock 
radio in the toilet by now? I realize that I 
have no socks, so instead of borrowing a 
pair from my brother (his socks are long 
enough to stow away 72 drunken sailors) I 
take the barefoot route. Just call me Mr. 

I grab a Dr. Pepper and scarf down a 
handful of Frosted Flakes as I hop into my 
car, already about four minutes late to class. 
Halfway to school, I remember that I didn't 
remember to bring my class schedule. Got 
to go back. 

After searching through my room for a 
few minutes, I give up the fight and race to 
school. Now 12 minutes late. Things are 

still not looking good. 

As I drive on campus, my stereo boasting 
the rage and fury of Henry Rollins, I see that 
there are no parking spots left My quick 
mind and advanced reasoning skills, not 
unlike Batman's, remind me that security 
rarely checks the 20-minute parking zone (I 
did not tell you this) so I slide in very 

I hot foot across the street to PI 03 only to 
find that class has already adjourned. I 
forgot that classes always run short on the 
first day. 

Dr. Kelley is still there, though, and she 
hands me a syllabus as I grovel for her 
forgiveness. Things are looking bad. 

"Not again," she would say as, for some 
reason, I'm always seen as the class-cutting 
type. Bum rap. 

I assure her that I am a changed student 
and skip off to the student store, making 
sure to go past the bookstore and laugh at 
freshmen who actually buy all the books 
their professors assign them. I think a warm 

welcome is deserved for die newcomers to 
this fine educational facility. 

I buy another Dr. Pepper at the student 
store (Hey, I'm a Pepper, and damn proud 
of it!) and head to the TV studio where I find 
that Mr. Lopez has canceled class. Ah, 
things were looking beuer. 

With time to kill, I sneak into die cafeteria 
to grab a free lunch (Why would a com- 
muter be on the meal plan?). After one taste 
of the pulsating meat-like substance smoth- 
ered in a creamy green paste, I discard itand 
journey onward. Can't complain — it was 

I wonder aimlessly until my next class, 
where everyone tells a little about their 
summer. After we all realize that we ac- 
complished nothing over die three- month 
siesta, class disperses — the day is done. 

Things weren't so bad. 

In fact, on the way out, I almost ran over 
a kook on a skateboard. Just missed 'em! 
Things looked a lot better. Maybe I'll come 
back tomorrow.

CLU baseball two outs from national title 

Three-run home run In top 
of ninth ends Kingsmen's 
dream season 

By Rick Wilson 


It was around 30 degrees in late May in 
Battle Creek, Mich., and the Kingsmen are 
just two outs shy of being the first NCAA 
Division in team west of the Mississippi 
to be National Champions since CSU 
Stanislaus won back-to-back titles in 1976 
and 1977. 

Yet, with one out in the top of the ninth 
inning and two runners on base, clean-up 
hitter Ralph Perdomoof William Patterson 
College in Fort Wayne, N .J ., belted a three- 
run home run over the right centerfield 
fence to give Patterson a 3- 1 lead. Five outs 
later, the celebration began, but on the 
other side of the field at CO. Brown Sta- 
dium there was little joy. 

This story sure sounds like a movie script 
or a Mighty Casey at the Bat poem, but that 
is exactly what happened to the "mighty" 
Kingsmen in their first season as a Divi- 
sion III participant. 

Cal Lutheran, under the watchful eye of 
head coacfi Rich Hill, finished second in 
the nation with a 43-6 record and also won 
a SCIAC championship with a 20- 1 record. 
Hill, who has won 162 and lost 69 in five 
seasons, was named the SCIAC Coach of 
the Year and the West Region Coach of the 

The Kingsmen, like many of the other 
CLU athletic teams in 1991-92 gained a 
' new rival in the UC San Diego Tritons. It 
began back on March 28 when the Tritons, 
who were hosting the Sunshine Classic, 
put the first "L" in the Kingsmen's loss 

The 5-3 loss to the Tritons not only ended 
a 2 1 -game winning streak, but it started the 
rivalry, and it took just a few hours for the 
Kingsmen to answer back with a 9-4 win 
over UCSD and the Sunshine Classic 

The rivalry .would calm down for the 
month of April, but sprang back to life in 
May. Although ranked No. 1 in the nation, 
CLU was not allowed to host the regional 
tournament due to the lack of a regulation 
field, and was forced to travel to UCSD one 
more time in the middle of May. The 
Kingsmen did not let this minor detail spoil 
their fun, as they beat the Tritons in the best 
of five series, 3 games to 1. 

From UCSD, it was off to Battle Creek, 
Michigan, the home of Kelloggs Com 
Flakes, and the site of the NCAA Division 
III World Series. CLU was the last of the 
teams to play, as they played host to the 
1991 defending champions, Southern 
Maine. However, CLU defeated the Hus- 
kies on May 21, 5-3. Next up for the 

Kingsmen was Methodist College from 
North Carolina. Bad weather postponed the 
game until Sunday afternoon, but in 30 
degree weather they lost to Methodist, 4-2. 
With one more defeat the Kingsmen would 
bow out of the double elimination tourna- 
ment. However, the never-say-die team 
came on strong to win three straight over 
Wisconsin-Oshkosh 5-2 and Methodist, 7- 
4 and 2-0 to advance to the final. 

Junior centerfielder Darrell McMillin 
earned first-team Ail-American honors. 
Player of the Year for the SCIAC and de- 
stroyed many school-records including most

home runs in a single season with 19. In 48 
games, McMillin batted .388, scored 59 
runs, drove in 52 runs including nine game- 
winning RBIs and finished with a team- 
high 71 hits including 13 doubles. 

Steve Dempsey, a senior right-handed 
pitcher, also earned first-team All-Ameri- 
can honors with a 1 1-1 record and a 2.11 
earned run average in a school-record 106.2 
innings pitched. Dempsey also gained first- 
team AU-SCIAC and All-Championship 
Tournament honors. 

Dan Smith, a senior shortstop transfer 
from San Jose State, was named a second- 

team All- American, first-team All-SCIAC, 
and was selected to three All -Tournament 
teams. After beginning the season slowly, 
Smith came on with a bang as he hit a 
school-record 20 doubles along with eight 
home runs, a .350 batting average, 62 hits 
and 15 stolen bases. 

Southpaw Pat Norville gained third-team 
All-America honors and first-team All- 
SCIAC honors. Norville was 9-3 with a 
1 .68 ERA and struck out a team-high 68 
batters in just 91.1 innings pitched. 

Junior Mike Winslow completed his jun- 
ior year with an 8-1 record and a 2.54 ERA 
in 63.2 innings pitched while earning sec- 
ond-team AU-SCIAC honors and All-Tour- 
nament for the West Regionals. 

Senior Bob Farber earned second-team 
All-SCIAC and was named to the World 
Series and West Region All-Tournament 
Teams while also being recognized as a 
GTE CoSIDA Academic Ail-American 
(2nd team) for the College division. Farber 
came on strong late in the season and fin- 
ished with arecord-tying 20 doubles, a .357 
batting average, 56 hits and 30 RBIs. 
Other Kingsmen named to the All-SCIAC, 
first or second teams for the 1992 season 
included IB Jay Lucas, 2B Jason Wilcox, 
3B/Designated hitters Mike Suarez and Jim 
Fifer, catcher Eddie Lample, OF Eric John- 
son and pitcher Mike Teron. 

For the season the Kingmen outscored 
their opponents 438 to 125 and left on base 
over 100 more runners than its opponents. 
CLU hit .3 19 as a team with 130 doubles, 73 
home runs, 553 hits, 100 stolen bases and a 
.974 fielding average. 

The pitching staff was equally as impres- 
sive, with a 2.22 ERA in 434.0 innings. The 
pitchers threw eight complete games and 10 
shutouts while striking out three batters to 
every walk allowed..

Winning streak provides optimism for 1992 

Kingsmen end 1991-92 with four- game winning streak against new conference opponents 

By Rick Wilson 


After making the move from NCAA Di- 
vision II NAIA to Division in on Septem- 
ber 1, 1991, the Kingsmen were forced to 
wait until this season to be recognized as 
official members of the SCIAC, joining six 
schools with football programs in a very 
competitive conference. 

Too bad CLU's accomplishments were 
not recognized a year ago, because the 
Kingsmen won four of five games versus 
SCIAC opponents, including four in a row 
to end the season. 

The streak began with a win over Occi- 
dental College on the road and ended with 
a huge win over the SCIAC champions, the 
Bulldogs from Redlands, at homeNov. 16. 

The Kingsmen and third-year head coach 
Joe Harper hope to start 1992 off in the 
same manner as they ended 1991, with a 
win in the season opener over the Sagehens 
from Pomona-Pitzer Sept. 12. The schedule 
is complete with six conference games plus 
non-conference clashes with Azusa Pacific 
University and the University of San Di- 
ego, teams that always give CLU a battle. 
The new kid on the block for CLU is 
Menlo College, a Division III independent 
from Atherton, located a few blocks from 
Stanford University. The Oct 24 clash at 
MountClef Stadium will mark the first time 
the two teams have met on the gridiron. 

For the first time since the days of talented 
quarterback, Tom Bonds, the Kingsmen 
will have to rely on their offense rather than 
a stingy defense to be successful early on in 
ine season . a numoeroi aeiensi ve standouts 
such as Cary Caulfield, Mike Sylvester, Ed 
Ramirez, Kevin Evans and Sal Jimenez 
have graduated from a team that allowed a 
meager 78.4 yards rushing, 13th best in 
Division III. A rundown of the 1992 offense 
and defense follows with quotes from Joe 

OFFENSE (Starters Returning - 9) 
Quarterback: Adam Hacker (6-3, 225) 
and David Harris (5-9, 170) will return for 
their sophomore seasons after gaining valu- 
able experience under fire in 1991 . 

Hacker started six games - before and 
after a shoulder injury at Sonoma State that 
put him on the shelf for two games - and 
completed 95 of 193 passes for 1 ,084 yards 
and six touchdowns. He was erratic at times 
as freshmen tend to be, as he threw 10 

Harris came off the bench following 
Hacker's injury and started the LaVeme and 
the Occidental contests. In his first colle- 
giate start versus a good La Verne squad, he 
completed 12 of 32 passes for 120 yards 
with one interception. However, he came 
back a week later to score on a 3 -yard run 
against an undefeated Tiger team, as he led 
the Kingsmen to a 12-0 win. 

Coach Harper: "Having a returning 
starter at quarterback will be a big boost 
to our offense in the early season. Hacker's 
experience in 1991 was very positive. He 
should be one of the top passers in the 
SCIAC in '92." 

Tailback: Cassidy O'Sullivan will return 
for his final season, as he continues his 
assault on the football record books. The 
senior from shaky Big Bear rushed for 990 

a strong group of wide receivers, led by 
seniors Len Bradley (16 receptions, 209 
yards), Rob Caulfield (11-120) and Tom 
Helmer (10-68). 

Coach Harper: "Sophomore Dustin 
Magdaleno (Santa Paula), redshirt fresh- 
man Rob Sharpe (Santa Maria) and fresh- 
man Roger Morante (Irvine) will also be 
strong contenders for considerable play- 
ing time." 

Tight End: Fast becoming one of the top 
tight ends in Division III football, Scott 
Wheeler, 6-2, 205 from Valencia, caught 
35 passes, second highest on the team, for 
436 yards and three touchdowns. The long- 
est TD of the season for Wheeler came in 
the Claremont game, as he took a pass from 
Hacker over the middle and rambled 50 
yards for the score. 

Coach Harper: "Scott has all the quali- 
ties you look for in a tight end. He runs 
well after the catch and is an intense 

Offensive Line: Scott Squires, the offen-

Soccer teams eye national prize 

In their first year as members of the South- 
em California Intercollegiate Athletic Con- 
ference (SCIAQ, the Regals, led by head 
coach George Kuntz, took no prisoners as 
they won the conference championship with 
a 12-0 record and outscored opponents 81- 

CLU finished the season with a 17-4 
record and ranked #16 in the nation. The 
three defeats came at the hands of Division 
I San Diego State, Division II National 
Champion, Cal State Dominguez Hills and 
UCSD, ranked #3 in Division III. 

The Regals were selected to the NCAA 
Division III playoffs for the first time, and 
started off on a high note with a 3-0 white- 
wash of #6 ranked Kalamazoo, MI. How- 
ever, the season came to an end at the hands 
of host UC San Diego, who shut out the 
Regals 2-0 to win the West Region final. 

The Regals were led all season by last 
year's sophomore forward Rachel 
Wackerman, who scored 36 goals in 1991 , 
breaking her own record of 30 goals scored 
in 1990. 

Her 66 goals in 38 career matches places 
her 8th on the all-time goal scoring list, only 
44 behind the all-time leader, Beth Byrne of 
Franklin & Marshall, who scored 1 10 goals 
in her career. To top off the season, Rachel 
was named the Player of the Year in the 
SCI AC by a vote of the coaches. 

Second in goal scoring on the team was 
junior Catherine Graham, who scored 10 
goals and was tied for second with 22 points 
along with junior forward Vanessa Martin, 
who scored nine goals and had four assists. 
Goalkeeper JoAnne Vanderwall recorded 
1 1 shutouts, most of them coming in con- 
ference play, with a total of 60 saves and a

Kingsmen soccer hopes to repeat as SCIAC champs 

The Kingsmen soccer team joined the 
Southern California Intercollegiate Con- 
ference (SCIAC) last fall and immediately 
made their presence known in their first 
year of competition. 

With a 2-1 double overtime win over the 
previous year's champion Claremont-Mudd- 
Scripps on October 30, and a win in their 
final match over Caltech, the Kingsmen 
were declared co-champions of the SCIAC 
along with CMS as both teams finished 
with 13-1 conference records. 

The win propelled the Kingsmen into the 
Division III playoffs and a second round 
match versus the Tritons of UC San Diego. 

On a sunny fall afternoon in La Jolla, the 
Kingsmen took a 1-0 lead into the locker 
room at halftime, but were overcome in the 
final 45 minutes and lost 3-2. 

UCSD went on to win the national title 
two weeks later. 

CLU was led all season by three players:

while Hosoien came to play in the big 
games this season. 

He assisted on the only goal in a win over 
Pomona-Pitzer and scored the winning goal 
in the Claremont match with 15 seconds 
remaining in double overtime. 
Guerricabeitia, a sophomore, posted eight 
shutouts this season and had a terrific G AA 
of 1.01. 

George Kuntz, in his fifth season as the 
men's coach, has been busy in the off- 
season recruiting new players for this year's 
team as well as conducting his Soccer Di-

Kingsmen players Ruiz, Luis Gutierrez,

Forum to house new 
35 mm film system 

Comm Arts, English, Political Science to benefit 

By Charlie Flora 


CLU acquired a Century 35 mm motion 
picture projection system, valued between 
SI 25 ,000 and $150,000 which is expected 
to be completely installed and ready for use 
in the Preus-Brandt Forum within the next 
two weeks. 

Bruce Scou, a semi-retired owner of the 
Hollywood film shop ScouSound, sold the 
system, said to be in mint condition, to CLU 
for $7,500 on Sept. 1. According to Art 
Lopez, chairman of theCommunication Arts 
Department, the system was previously used 
at an estate in Bel Aire by film investor and 
financier Jerry Orrbach for private screen- 
ings of movies that sometimes hadn't been 
released yet. 
This summer Lopez bumped into Scott, an 
old friend, and mentioned that CLU would 
someday like to acquire a 16mm film pro- 
jection system. Scott is the administrator of 
the estate owned by Orrbach and at the time, 
was looking for someone to buy the film 

The negotiations went smoothly and the 
price was lowered to the purchase that came 
about "as a result of a long-standing friend- 
ship," according to Lopez. 

"It's a gift," Lopez said. "He could have 

made a bundle off of it - other schools like 
USC were interested, Tom Cruise and 
(Arnold) Schwarzeneggar were heard to be 
interested buyers also. 

"I was initially very skeptical because I 
knew how expensive these systems can be. 
But once I saw the system and the price we 
were getting it at, I knew we had hit the 

The system was paid for by the CLU 
Office of Broadcast Operation and Ser- 

Other CLU faculty who will benefit from 
the acquistion are English Professor Mel vyn 
Haberman, Communication Arts Profes- 
sor Russell Stockard, Political Science 
Assistant Professor Herb Gooch and Drama 
Assistant Professor Michael Rohr. 

The system will be of use for Communi- 
cation Arts courses Film I and Film II; the 
English course Cinema; and Political Sci- 
ence courses American Politics and Euro- 
pean Politics as well as any film criticism 
courses offered. 

Rohr, who also works as the technical 
director in the Drama Department, plans to 
use the film system for fund-raising pur- 
poses. Money would be raised by opening 
up the forum to the community for movie 
showings and the money collectedwouldbe

Faculty to get improved computers through Multimedia Network 

By Eric Rutiin 

Imagine silling at your computer in your dorm 
room ormoneof the lab rooms, typmgupamajor 
term paper. You realize you need more refer- 
ences, so you link up to the library from the very 
same computer you were working on and get a 
listing of aD the reference books there. Youtake 
this information and print it out on your printer 
with the satisfaction of knowing that it is there, 
and return to your paper. 

No, CLU students are not able to do this yet, but 
very soon, CLU plans to make this a reality. 

Julius Bianchi, director of academic comput- 

ing, said that around $420,000 has been raised 
for the "Multimedia Network Project," which is 
expected to be complete in two years. 

"Funding for the new faculty computers and 
computer upgrades is the first priority," said 
Bianchi, who expects part of the project to be 
done by the end of 1992. 

The main network is going to be done by fiber 
optic cables, and will first network academic and 
administrative buildings such as the Ahmanson 
Science Center, Nygreen Hall, Pearson Library, 
Peters Hall, Regents Court, and D, F, and G 

In addition to faculty computers, computers 
geared for student use are considered being 

upgraded as well, offering 15 faster and more 
powerful IBM 486 in Room D-13. Macintosh 
LC D's will be added as well to the Pearson 
Library and in room D- 1 1 . 

Probably one of the most significant additions 
coming to CLU is the Internet Connection. Itis 
an on-line service where students and faculty 
alike can gain access to a library catalog that is 
worldwide as well as gigabytes of software. It 
also possesses and electronic mail system in, 
which you can leave mail toanyone anywhere on 
the network. 

More than 500,000 computers are networked 
to this service and an estimated 3 million people 
use it. 

Year two involves networking student dorms. 

Not only will the computer labs have access, but 
students will be able to connect their own com- 
puters from theirown rooms. Training seminars, 
workshops and software demonstrations will be 
offered to faculty and students once the network 
is up. 

The person who organized most of the funding 
was DellaGreenlee.CLU'sdirectorof grants and 

Greenlee got support from such organizations 
as The Fletcher Jones Foundation, Weingart 
Foundation, Presidential Discretionary Grant, 
Knight Foundation, the National Science Foun- 
dation and from CLU.

Rock the vote looks to college students for response 

College Press Service 

Democrats want you. Republicans want you. 

Rock stars want you. Public affairs organizations 
want you. Politicians want you. 

What those organizations want from you is 
simple: If you are 18 or older, you can vote. But to 
vote, youmust first be registered And if you are the 
typical college undergraduate, between the ages of 
18 and 24, you represent a segment of American 
culture that is perceived as being not likely lo vote 

or to participate in the political process. 

So colleges and university campuses nation- 
wide have been targeted by private and public 
interest groups to register students and toget them 
to the polls Nov. 3. 

"Students tend to feel left ouL Candidates don't 
appear to be addressing that are of concern to 
students," said Becky Cain, president of the 
NanonalLeagueofWomen Voters. "On the20th 
anniversary of the right for 1 8-year-olds to vo»e, 
this group has the least percentage voter turnout 

than any other age group." 

"Get them on the rolls, get them to the polls," said 
MDce Dolan, field director for Rock the Vote, a 
non-profit, non-pamaan organization that has or- 
ganized student voter registration drives nation- 

Top issuesthat appear to be of concern to college 
students on the national level include the economy, 
the environment and abortion rights, activists say. 

If students want lo address these concerns, they 
must first register to vote, registration organizers 

say. That way, they can vote for candidates who 
most closely represent their ideals and ideas of 

what government should be, and what issues the 
representatives should address.

KCLU meets to discuss plans 



On September?, 1992, there was an informational meeting, signaling thm^ 

radio station, KCLU, will be hitting the airwaves. Following the pattern of past years, the station 


Rap, Reggae, and Techno. 

The meeting consisted of fifteen students interested in working for the radiostation. The meeting 
discussed the upcoming year, requirements for participation m broadcasting, and the rules and 
regulations that need to be followed in the station. Jason Dreyer, the staticfi director, commented 
that although the turnout was small, it was '^pretty good size for the lack of advertising." 

The meeting was headed by four of the producers and managers of KCLU. This included Jason 
Dreyer, Mike Torgerson, Chad Hellmuth, and Carolyn West. This is Dreyer's third year at 
KCLU, and his first year as station director. 

He began working in his freshman year as the music librarian, logging in the music that was 
played for the director. He then moved to specialty music director, and then this year assumed 
the job as station director. 

Torgerson is this years production manager, in charge of speaking with record representatives 
anddealing with the disc jockeys. It is his second year involved with KCLU. Hellmuth, primarily 
involved with production, helps to "motivate people to express themselves." 

He gives input and assistance in developing formats and programs, especially for the new DJs. 
West is participating in her fifth year at the radio station as the specialty music director. She is 
primarily inchargeof the Rap,Reggae,and the slightly more obscure programming at the station. 

One of the changes from last years format include the increase in Techno and Country. KCLU 
will also be featuring several contests and give aways, including tickets to the Ventura County 
Theater, the nearest concert arena to Thousand Oaks. 

Dreyer is optimistic about the upcoming year, yet he remindsstudents ,, it's the listeners station." 
Hellmuth furthered thatc»mmentsaymgKCLUis"alwayslookm 
better and more enjoyable. 

With the stations "overflowing" library, according to Dreyer, there is ample variety, and 
students are encouraged to phone in for requests or suggestions. 

The prospective disc jockeys are not required to have any experience, and enrollment in CLU 
is not required. The directors are hopeful that the radio station wiU be rjroadcasting in about two

By Amy Walz 

Are you lagging behind in homework already? 
If so, you must be attending too many dorm 
activities. These acti vibes keep students from 
getting homesick and also provide a means for 
getting to know more people. 

To start the school year off, Pederson Hall held 
a game of Win, Lose, or Draw for its residents. 
They also held a dorm barbecue on Labor Day. 
Pederson residents stayed busy as they played 
who spoke on the topic of AIDS. 

Upcoming events include providing paper by 
Pederson RAs Sept 22 for that first letter home 
to mom and dad

people on your own, or are extremely shy and 
want to get over it, sign up for the second annual

Being part of CLU is 
a unique experience 

Jason Russell 



Luther Luedtke 
CLU President 

Dear CLU Student Body: 

Editor Charlie Flora's invitation to pen a 
"welcoming letter" for the Echo gives me this 
opportunity not only to greet you at the start of 
a wonderful year but also to thank those many 
students who have stopped me on the sidewalk 
or come by the office to say heDo. This friend- 
liness and warm th are a sign of what makes Cal 
Lutheran such a unique community in which to 
study, explore, and prepare for life - and what 
inspires such strongaffecoonamongour alumni 
When I joined CLU as president this Aug. 1, 
the campus was in a state of quiet expectation. 
The summer courses and camps were mostly 
finished. Our beautiful lawns, shrubbery and 
flowers were serenely undisturbed Tne book- 
store was stocking its shelves, and last-minute 
renovations were being made to the residence 
halls. The campus was in an "administrative" 
mode waiting for the new year to begin. 

All has suddenly changed in the past two 
weeks with, first, the annual faculty retreat on 
Aug. 27-28, and then the arrival of the students 
- freshmen, transfers and continuing - and the 
start ofclasses. The university isaliveonce more 

and about i ts business of educating, inspiring and 
building community . It is a joy to be a part of the 
CLU experience. 

1 will have many chances to express admiration 
for the quality and commitment of the CLU 
faculty, the areas of excellence that distinguish 
our curriculum (such as the new Core 21 pro- 
gram), and what I know to be intellectual rich- 
ness and social diversity of the student body. 

For the moment, I will just comment on the 
exceptional concern thatCLU's Student Affairs 
orientation and advisement to counseling, career 
development, international programs, special 
events, volunteer activities, health services and 
campus ministry. Attending a meeting of Vice 
President (Ron) Kragthorpe's staff last week, I 
was struck by the knowledge that each of the 
dozen persons present has of your individual 
personalities and needs, and of the sacrifices that 
so many are making to support your education. 
This is a deeply caring community. 

Having left a very large private university in 
Los Angeles ato two decades as a professor and 
administrator in English, Journalism and Ameri- 
can Studies, I appreciate how rare and difficult it 
is to forge these intimate ties between students, 
faculty and administration. 

I wish you well this year, whether you are a 
freshman or a CLU veteran. Let us always keep 
With warm regards, 
Luther Luedtke. 

I would like to take this opportunity to wel- 
come back all of the returning students, as well 
as give a grand welcome to the transfer students 
and the largest incoming freshman class in a 
number of years. 

As your student body president, I would like to 
issue an informal challenge to all of you. First, if 
there is something you would like to see done or 
done differently, let me or any Senate member 
know. Secondly, get involved! There are so 
many different activities, clubs, in tram urals and 
other aspects of student life available to you. 

Russell's word to the wise: "There is no such 
thing at Cal Lu as being bored, just boring 
people." If you would like to know about up- 
coming events call Campus Activities at Ext 

A third challenge goes above and beyond 
getting involved. You need to make the differ- 
ence. Don't rely on others, help yourself to the 
land of education that you pay for and deserve. 
Your class officers, as weD as myself , need your 
input, ideas and criticism in order to better life at 
the Lu. Senate meetings are held in the Student 
at S pjn. and are open to all who wish to attend. 
You may also see the minutes from each meet- 
ingasthcy will be posted in the glass case outside 
the cafeteria 

I want to congratulate the CLU baseball team 

Let's all get 

which made it to the final game in the NCAA 
The basketball, football and soccer teams also 
brought the lime light to the CLU campus. 
Each of these teams look to have a promising 
1992-93 season, so show your support and 
enthusiasm by attending their games. 

Some upcoming events are: 
President's Picnic & Student Club Fan- 
Wednesday, Sept 16 - 1 1 am to 1:30 pjn. 
Magic Mountain Night 
Friday, Oct. 2 - 6pm. to lam. 
Tickets can be purchased in the Campus 
Activities Office beginning Sept 1 . • 
Homecoming week Oct 12-15 

Community Leaders Club Carnival 
Nov. 13-15 
In association with ASCLU 

On a final note, for all you seniors out there, 
whether you are in your fourth, fifth, sixth or, 
in Mark Tietjen's case, seventh, have a blast 
go wild, study hard, grow up and mature 
steadily, make some money, plan your future , 
raft Kingsmen Creek in the win ter.gotoclass, 
enjoy the nice, smell the roses (but 
don't pick) live a little, but most importantly, 

I hope to see you aD around campus. If you 
need my help, call my office at Ext 3461 
Good luck and once again have a super year! 


Our Idea of a Truly Successful Man 

The "successful man" is one who derives more pleasure from giving than receiying, 
and who receives whatever he is given with whole-hearted intent to put it to good use 
partly for himself and for the good of others. He is a man whose ready smile brings light 
to the darkest situation, and whose kindness and understanding serve as a pattern for 
others to follow. He is one who gives freely of his friendship and who strives to convert 
enemies into friends. He is a man whose regard for human and divine authority merits 
the tribute of respect for himself and family. 

This man is envied for his clear mind and cool head when facing difficulties; yet he 
is one whose wise judgment and straight thinking are always tempered by conscience. 
Above all, he is one who knows, believes and fights for his rights as a moral being with 
an immortal soul: whose goal in life is to prepare that soul for paradise. - D. A.

Staff Opinion 

Out of sight, out of mind 
... the 'dozing begins 


Charlie Flora 

We wonder if our neighbors over the hill 
might better might more truthfully adver- 
tise "Save Our Property Values" rather than 
"Save Our Ridgeline." 

As the bulldozers and dynamite began 
ripping into the sides of Mountclef Ridge 
this past week -- theCLU side, not the Santa 
Rosa Valley side, to be sure — nary a peep 
was heard from the the ridge's so-called 

This strikes us as a supreme hypocrisy 
given the strength of the property owners' 
outrage regarding the radio antenna tower 
proposed for the top of Mountclef. How 
could the university defile the pristine im- 
age of Mountclef Ridge with a radio tower. 

It is assumed the "out of sight, out of 
mind" rationale applies here. Since the hous- 
ing development planned for the ridge is not 
staring down on them, the neighbors are less 
concerned about what happens to the ridge. 

The Adventures of Gumby & Luedtke 

It won't affect their property values. 

The response should not be surprising, 
however, given the smugness of the Santa 
Rosa residents toward students who at- 
tended the Planning Commission and City 
Council meetings last spring, as well as the 
distorted propaganda campaign about the 
size of the antenna, the "danger" of radia- 
tion and the "deep pockets" of the univer- 
sity. Anyone here could tell you, the 
university's pockets are only as deep as its 

students'. -The Echo Staff

Skateboarding into the office of his 
royalness, I was greeted by Luther Luedtke's 
new secretary, Jeanne, and a half dozen 
copies of the News Chronicle's front-page 
story on the new CLU president 

I had to wait on this July morning because 
the soon-to-be-CLU president was having 
a meeting with the soon-to-be-chancellor 
and it was going a little over schedule. After 
waiting for almost 15 minutes, I became 
one with the chair I was sitting in. 

Just then Donna Day of the Financial Aid 
office strolled in to donate her copy of the 
News Chronicle. She glanced over and be- 
gan to walk toward me. 

"Pehr?" she asked smiling. 

"Who?" I said, now standing up from my 

"Pehr," she said confidently, now having 
no doubt that I had to be Luedtke's 19-year- 
old son. 

"Charlie. My name is Charlie. 

"Oh," she said despondently. "I thought 
you were . . . somebody else." 

I've never been such a non-factor (sigh). 

A couple of other smiling CLU employ- 
ees, hoping to catch a glimpse of the new 
prez, walked in the office. Everyone was 
talking of the day's paper with Luedtke on 
the cover and the accompanying color pic- 
ture -- a wave of excitement seemed to pick 
up the room as all waited for Luedtke to 
appear from behind the closed doors. 

Amid all the ruckus, the president's door 
burst open and Cal Lutheran's new leader 
finally made his presence known, whije 
trying to politely leave a still-talking Jerry 

All in the office surrounded the 48-year- 
old accomplished scholar who was the di- 
rector of the School of Journalism at USC 
as well as the chair of Graduate^Studies. 

Jeannie asked him if he had seen the 

"Yes," said Luedtke, pointing to the by- 
line. 'This reporter seemed to do a good job 
of turning a sour-ear into a salesman." 

Thoughts filled my head. Is this guy re- 
ally a sour-ear? In the paper, he was de- 
scribed as a "relentless gardener." 

It was at this point that I vowed not to ask 
him any questions about his personal hob- 

After making some scheduling changes 
with his secretary , the president and I walked 
toward the Student Union Building as 
he related to me similar summer school 
memories. Once inside, the president noted 
how clean the SUB was compared to the 
last time he visited it 

Of course it was trashed as usual, with all 
the summer camp kids using it as a romper 
Room, but the president's polite comments 
served as the lead-in to an hour-long inter- 

"Pervasive love, overpowering commit- 
ment incomplete facilities, quality faculty 
and students with strong-personality," 
Luedtke's views of CLU were fresh as he

Post interview 

So far, so good 

spoke cautiously, but with the excitement 
of an 18-year-old in his first week of col- 

With a list of 1 2 questions, it only took me 
one to realize that this was going to be an 
open-ended interview -- which was good. 
What was I going to do, ask him about the 
'hard issues' that need to be dealt with at 

How do you feel about a radio tower that 
has spent over $150,000 on legal fees? The 
Campus expansion? How about the long- 
delayed Athletic Complex? Increased en- 

The questions might as well been, "What 
are you going to do about the current 
recession? What about the homeless prob- 
lem? Where do you stand on abortion? 

I wasn't interviewing Bill Clinton on this 
day. I knew he wouldn't have an answer for 
everything - the new CLU president was 
not briefed on all the issues. 

I did bring up the controversial issues of 
CLU such as the tower and campus expan- 
sion. And he did have an opinion, a thought 
and at least a partial answer for the ques- 
tions I threw at him. In the short lime we 
talked, he seemed to have a really good 
grasp on the issues for not being "well- 
educated on the matter." 

Luther Luedtke came across as intelli- 
gent while staying cautious and clear. Hi. 
opinion of CLU is a complete refreshment 
from that of other leaders. He has outright 
enthusiasm for his new position: He said in 
July he couldn't wait to get behind the 
steering wheel. 

Yet he can not hide the fact that he sees a 
lot of things that need to be changed. We are 
at a school that is incomplete in many 
aspects, most agree, and Luedtke wants to 
understand the processes that went into the 
previous decisions. Some of these deci- 
sions need to be looked at again, Luedtke 
said. He mentioned the Long-Range Plan 
as something that need to be re-examined. 

Regarding the radio tower 

"We are a small institution of about 1 ,500 
undergraduates. A radio station should re- 
quire an enormous amount of program- 
ming and organizing. If it's done, it should 
be done well. 

Regarding the current facilities: 

"The facilities built are not equal to the 
quality of the faculty and students." 

Regarding the size of the university: 

Luedtke would like to see CLU develop 
into a Valparaiso or Notre Dame, with an 
enrollment of around 4,000. He cautions 
that expansion must come "without losing 
the personality and intimacy of CLU." 

He believes in the Regents, sees them as 
incredibly "overpowering." He believes in 
the students, of the few he met he described 
them as "strong characters." 
At the beginning of the interview, Luedtke 
said he saw nothing negative, only positive 
aspects of California Lutheran Unviersity. 
His reign seems just as positive, so far.

Actletes are open to audience suggestions 

... the players would act out scenes based on audience suggestion, some of which were quite bizarre 

By Jay Ashkinos 


Corned) Sportz performed at the Preus-Brandt Forum Sept. 10. 

Loran Lewis/Echo 

At least three CLU students were seen 
leaving the Preus-Brandt Forum last Thurs- 
day night with brown paper bags over their 
Confused? Let's hope so. 

This was one of the many acts of utter 

silliness (for lack of a better word) that went 

on the evening of Sept. 10 as the Comedy 

Sportz team made a stop to entertain a semi- 

loudCLUcrowd with improvisational com- 

If any of you have seen the show "Who's 
Line is it Anyway" on Comedy Central, 
Comedy Sportz is quite similar. 

The show was divided into two teams. 
The Wcstlake Village "Idiots" and the 
Agoura "Phobias," with the Idiots edging 
the Phobias by a point, but that's not impor- 

What is important is that these "acUetes" 
(as they called themselves) were funny. 

We all should have known belter, for CSz 
was developed in part by the creators of 
Airplane! and Police Squad! (why the ex- 
clamation points, guys). 

"Are you serious?" someone would ask. 

I am serious, and don't call me Shirley. 

In brief, the players would act out scenes 
based on audience suggestions, some of 
which were quite bizarre. 

From Rumplcstilskin man (Help! Save 
me Rumplestilskin man! ) to a scuba diving 
vacation on Guam to being murdered in a 
closet by a podiatrist with a powdered 
doughnut (I'd hale to go that way) it was so 
off the wall that ... uh, well. ..I don't know, 
it just was. 

The show also made a star out of student 
Steve (sorry budj don't know your last 
name) with the Malcom X hat. Anyway, he 
got to do a skit with the Idiots and hammed 
it up nicely. He also made off with a pocket 
protector and a new girlfriend named Juliet 
(one of the CSz babes). 

The show ended with all of the actletes 
participaung in the " 1 85" joke (You know, 
185 blanks walk into a bar. The bartender 
says "Sorry, we don't serve blanks here," 
and the blanks say ). 

A well-educated Cal Lu audience sug- 
gested such fillers as butler, fingemailsand 
Marilyn Monroe's. 

Others that were suggested but were not 
used (but should have been) were chicken 
pluckers, bald attorney s, 902 1 wanna bees, 
tennis balls and rabid race horses. 

Oh, well. Maybe next time. 

Folk-rock singer writes his own poetic lyrics 

By Micah Reitan 


Folk-rock singer Jeffrey Gaines walks 
onto stages all around the world with only 
his silhouette painted on the back drop, his 
six string and his humble smile. The major- 
ity of the large audience is still deciding if 
they should go into the arena or stay out in 
the lobby and wait for the headliner. He 
introduces his first tune, lets go of his 
beautiful voice, and the audience comes 
into the arena. 

From there, Jeffrey Gaines releases a 
half-hour set, finding himself becoming 
accepted more and more with every line 
sung and every chord strummed. 

He's been around the world, supporting 
Tom Petty, Bryan Adams and now Melissa 
Etheridge. Who is the man behind the beau- 
tiful voice, strong poetic lyrics and intrigu- 
ing mind? I had a chance to sit down with 
the rising star for about 45 minutes the 
night before his 27th birthday to find out 
what Jeffrey Gaines was all about. What I 
found was a very humble and positive man 
who expresses very deep ideas and exposes 
very deep emotions in more then just his 

music or 30 minute set. 

Echo: How did it all start for you? 

There was always music on in my house. 

My cousin bought every new album that 

came out and we'd listen to them all the 

time. I was really into the heavy stuff. But 

my parents usually played lighter stuff. But 

there was always music on. I was born into 


E: Well, you've come a long way since 

then. What do you think of your newfound 


I'm not successful yet. But it has nothing to 

do with my music. 

E: But do you some day hope to go gold or 

platinum with your debut LP or any future 


It really doesn't matter to me. I just want to 

play gigs. Selling a million records would 

be nice, but it's like winning Student Body 

President — who cares? So you can go 

around and say, "Hi, I'm Student Body 

President!" Well that's great, but so what? 

It's just a boasting title. 

E: Lyrically, you cause people to stop and 

think about issues. You're a modern day 

Simon & Garfunkel. Tell us about your 


Forlyrics I tap my ownconscious. I seperate 


Jeffrey Gaines 

myself from me and become just "a per- 
son." I write about what most people don't 
want to express or expose. 

E: For example? 

In the song, "Hero In Me" I wrote about the 
need to accept our own insecurities and 
imperfections. Most people don't like to 
think about their imperfections these days. 
But they need to. My song makes them 
think, "Am I alright even though I'm 
insecure and imperfect?" 
E: From the lyrics in "Headmasters of 
Mine," it seems to be a case of negative 
schooling. Is that the case? 
I went to Catholic school for a while. They 
told me not to come back. But I was the art 
teacher's pet She'd always show off my art 
and tell the other teachers what an asset I 
was to the school. I don't think they lis- 

E: You seem like a very intellectual person 
Where did you get your eduation? 
From life. There are voices inside of you. 
I don't have any papers on the wall. But 
that's alright, ink bleeds and fades away. 
E: What can we expect from Jeffery 
Gaines in the future ? 
You can expect not to expect. That way 
there will be no disappointment, and no 
unkept promises. But for now I thank you 
all at CLU for giving me the support to 
make a living at what I'd do for free.

The movieMike 
hits the scene 

By Mike GretchkofT 


Going to the movies is something nearly everyone 
enjoys doing, expecially college students who often 
need a break from their studies to relax and get away 
for the evening. 

The Echo entertainment section will feature a regu- 
lar movie review to give the students of Cal Lutheran 
an idea which movies will be coming to the theaters. 

Here are some of the films to look forward to that are 
scheduled for September release. 

Comedian-actor Billy Crystal serves as cowriler, 
producer, director and star of "Mr. Saturday Night," 
the life story of a stand up comedian. 

Speaking of comedians, former "Saturday Night 
Live" star Martin Short plays the role of a bumbling 
seaman who inherits a boat and causes chaos on the 
high seas with Capt. Ron (Kurt Russell) in "On The 

Joe Pesci is back after the hilarious, yet unrealistic, 
"My Cousin Vinny" and stars in "The Public Eye." 
Pesci plays a New York photographer who considers 
his pictures of corpses works of art. 

Let's also take a look at a few movies that will be 
coming out several months down the line. 

Sylvester Stallone is putting his current comedic 
career on hold while he briefly returns to his inde- 
structible ways in "Cliffhanger." Set in the Italian 
Alps, Stallone must rescue some kidnapped rangers 
from a group of bad-boy thieves led by John Lithgow. 
Let's hope "Cliffhanger" tops "Rambo III." 

Robert DeNiro is teaming up with Bill Murray in a 
wiseguy-cop duo titled, "Mad Dog and Glory." Murray 
plays a loan shark named Frank Milo whose life is 
saved during an armed robbery by DeNiro' s charac- 
ter, detective Wayne Dobie.

By Micah Reitan 


My name is Micah Reitan, I'm a sopho- 
more Entertainment writer for the Echo. 
Most of my articles in mis year's Echo will 
focus upon music. I'll mostly be doing 
album reviews. I did over 25 of them last 
year for this paper. This year, I'd like to 
broaden the field of music in which I re- 

I love music. I come from a very musical 
family. My mother is a music teacher and 
she got my sisters and I started early. I 
remember having to sing Christmas songs 
in front of my entire family when I was 
really young, and I remember taking piano 
lessons before I could pronounce many 
English words. There is always music on in 
my house; whether it be the radio, someone 
practicing their instrument, or someone just 

otherwise may not have discovered. 

Additionally, many of you may be new 
to the area and are unaware of the outstand- 
ing entertainment and recreational possi- 
bilities in the immediate area, as well as 
other nearby areas in southern California. 

Last semester I brought you restaurant 
reviews, nightclub reports, as well as sto- 
ries about outdoor recreation weekend get 
always and fun places to take a date. I will 
bring you more of the same this year. 

I have been to or participated in most of 
the activities that I've written about. I also 
try and keep in mind that most of us are not 
on unlimited budgets. 

In my travels I have encountered places 
that were so great I just wanted to share it 
with everyone. If you have ever come 
across some where that you really enjoyed, 
drop me a note at the Echo office and fill 
me in. Your feedback is welcome. 

Be involved. Read the Echo. 

At one lime or another I played piano, 
clarinet, saxophone, drums and guitar. I sung 
in church and high school choir (not very 
well), took a full year of music theory and 
was in an original rock band. I've done some 
studio work, playing as well as producing. 
But now I just do some I ight 4 -tracking in my 
spare time. 

I think I have enough musical background 
to constructively praise and criticize the 
music that I hear. I understand that most of 
you don't know much music theory. Don't 
worry, my reviews shouldn't go over your 
heads. Rap isn't my strongest suit, but hope- 
fully I'll fool you. 

If you have any suggestions, call the Echo 
office at Ext.3645, or slip a note under the 
Echo office door (in the S.U.B), I'll review 
any type of music. 

I hope I can make your next run to the local 
record shop an easier one. I also hope I can 
convince you to broaden your musical limits 
by grabbing an album you probably wouldn 't.

Arthur Lopez, department chair, sees the 

situation a little differently, contending he 

told the team in May they would have a 


"I said in May there would be a new 
debate coach," he said. "And when I say 
something, I get it done - and guess what . 
. . I got it done." 

But it was the timing of the hiring- Aug. 
25, a week before classes started - the 
circumstances and the decision to not re- 
new the contract of John Torres, the debate 
coach for six years, that rankled many of 
those involved. 
Torres said he did not receive his contract 
renewal for this fall semester. Contracts are 
typically mailed to faculty in April and 
early May. 

Torres claims he didn't learn about the 
decision until he inquired about the con- 

"I think it was very unprofessional ."Torres 
said. "The only way I found out was that I 
just did not receive a contract. Halseth, to 
this day, hasn't talked to me and hasn't 
returned any of my calls." 

"And my feeling is ... I was told by 
people, that's not the way Cal Lutheran 
does business." 

"Curiosity . . . why did they fire him?" 
Judge said when asked what his initial reac- 
tion was. "I've known John for six years, 
and he is one of the best coaches I have had. 
I just want to know, plain and simply, why 
was John Torres let go as forensics direc- 
tor? I think the whole team would like to 

Torres maintains he was unable to apply 
for a position at another university as a 
result of the late notice. 

"If Halseth had come up to me at the 
beginning of the year and said I was going 
to be cut, then I would have had time to 
plan," Torres said. 

"The proper notice was given," Lopez 
said, adding that he and and Dr. Beverly 
Kelley, formerdepartmentchair.knew about 
the decision "on or about Dec. 5." 

"I believe this notice was in print," he 
added. N 

The reasons for not renewing Torres' 
contract, Lopez said, was "a confidential 

matter, whether you work at a private or 
public institution." 

Some communication arts faculty have 
also complained the hiring process was 
irregular as most members in the depart- 
ment were not involved in the interviewing 

"We were not part of the search or the 
interview process," said Kelley. "We found 
out when everyone else did." 

Explaining his decision, Lopez said: "I 
chaired the search committee. The search 
began late irt the summer and brought to- 
gether certain select faculty - Dr. Russell 
Stockard, Dr. Herb Gooch, Dr. Hoda 

"I just want to know, plain 
and simply, why was John 
Torres let go as forensics 
director? I think the whole 
team would like to know" 
-Jim Judge 

"The only way I found out 
was that I just did not receive 
a contract. Halseth, to this 
day, hasn't talked to me and 
hasn't returned any of my 
calls" -John Torres 

Jim Judge, Lourdes De Armes and John Torres present Jerry Miller this 
summer with a plaque to thank him for his support of the debate team.

used for renovating the forum. 

"We would like to show films that people 
don't get a chance to see a lot," Rohr said. 
"Especially films that are a bit more novel 
. . . that people have an interest in seeing." 

Rohr's renovation plans would be to take 
out the first two rows of seats, expand the 
stage, add curtains and better lighting all for 
the purpose of making the forum into "work- 
able performance space," Rohr said. 

Rohr's plans of renovation would shave 
the total number of seats from 252 to 240 
but would "take out the poor seats." 

Rohr would like to see more productions, 
such as drama plays, in the currently sel- 
dom-used forum. 

"The forum is not used very much at the 
moment and we can use this new film 
projector as a way to raise money toward 
renovation," Rohr said. 

Gooch said he could use the system for his 
summer class, "Summer American Politics 
and Film" and hopes to collaborate with 
Haberman, Lopez and Stockard on a course 
tentatively pinned "Academic Perspectives 
on Film." 

"It's fabulous," Gooch said. "I think the 
real news is that we now have the capability 
to have the quality of a regular, commercial 

"It's also a way to open up Cal Lutheran 
to the broader community. Places like the 

Thousand Oaks Library have already shown 
an interest" 

CLU will look for a new screen, estimated 
between $ 1 ,000 and $2,000, to accompany 
.the system in the forum. 

Lopez is setting up an exchange program 
with UCLA that would enable CLU to 
borrow certain 35 mm films, which are 
normally extremely expensive. 

Lopez, an alumnus of UCLA, says this is 
a very "doable thing." 

Greg Valtierra, a retired friend of Scott 
and former member of the International 
Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employ- 
ees, is heading up the task of assembling the 
camera and is in charge of installing the 
system in the forum. 

Paige Heagerty, a 1992 CLU graduate, 
and Agustin Ramos, a motion picture film 
technician who worked on "Mike The De- 
tective" (a film shot on the CLU campus 
this summer) as a boom operator, are assist- 
ing Valtierra. 

The forum was originally built with space 
left for a 35 mm projection system and even 
Scott said he couldn't have picked a better 
home for the system, Lopez said. 

"The university and the Comm Arts De- 
partment in particular owe a great debt to 
Bruce Scott," Lopez said. "This gift puts 
CLU up another big notch." 

"Being a small university does not mean 
you settle for second best or mediocrity; 
instead you play heads up when opportu- 
nity knocks and never look the gift horse in 
the mouth." 

Mahmoudi and myself. 

"This was done with the approval of the 
provost and academic dean (Halseth) and 
(Mahmoudi). Our choice was unanimous." 
Then the choice went before the Aca- 
demic Rank and Tenure Committee, where 
it was approved, Lopez said. 

In early August, an ad had been placed in 
the Los Angeles Times and The Chronicle 
of Higher Education. But the ad empha- 
sized broadcast qualifications and not speech 
and debate experience. 

Asked about the advertised qualifications, 
Lopez responded, "We were looking for 
someone who could benefit the Communi- 
cation Arts Department and the university 

He later added, "We weren't looking for 
a John Torres clone." 

Sharon Docter, a practicing attorney for 
three years, was hired to replace Torres as 
debate coach and speech instructor and has 
been thrust into the middle of the contro- 

Although she has never taught debate, 
Lopez said Docter comes highly recom- 
mended and "is extremely qualified and 
interviews superbly." 

Docter is finishing her Ph.D. at USC and 
says she is enjoying CLU very much. "I'm 
looking forward to the coming year." 

Because of her lack of experience in de- 
bate, Mark Jones, a graduate and former 
debate coach at Sacramento State who is 
currently enrolled at USC's Annenberg 
School of Communication, has been hired 
part-time to assist Docter with the debate 

Judge plans to help out with this year's 
debate team again, along with holding the 
debate coach position at Thousand Oaks 
High School. 

CLU is now allowing Torres to complete 
his teacher credentials at a reduced tuition 
rate. He will also be completing his doctor- 
ate at UCLA. 

Despite the controversy, surrounding the 
debate team, many debate team members 
are excited about the upcoming year. Jun- 
ior Scott Bean is just one. 

"Overall I'm very positive for the debate 
team this season," said Bean, who spent 
part of the summer at a debate seminar. "I 
met our new coach, she seems excited."

Kuntz credits coaching 
success to his parents 

By Vanessa Martin

T '. 

George Kuntz 

"I think that in order to be a successful coach, one must be a great teacher as well." 


George Kuntz, the men's and women's 
head soccer coach here at California 
Lutheran University , definitely displays the 
qualities of a successful coach. With his 
al ways-room-to- learn technique, Kuntz has 
taught his teams to be confident and persis- 
tent in reaching toward their goals. 

Playing soccer in the back yard with his 
father, Daniel "Doc" Kuntz , at the age of 9, 
Kuntz worked his way up to play with the 
Phoenix Fire, a professional soccer team in 
Arizona. Holsten Kiel, a third-division 
team was his next step, and then it was back 
to the U.S. to play for Westmont College. 

A shocking knee injury may have put an 
abrupt hold on Kuntz 's playing career, but 
his soccer dreams were still alive. 

Kuntz began coaching club teams around 
Southern California, and was soon ap- 
proached by a great opportunity - a coach- 
ing job at CLU. "I always played soccer 

wherever I got a chance, and I fell that with coaching it should be the same way. The door 
opened and I took it," said Kuntz. 

Kuntz's A-license and NSCAA (the highest license one can have in this country) caught 
the eye of CLU and Kuntz was hired . 

"When I came here almost five years ago, I not only wanted to leach the players soccer, 
but to have them walk away feeling that they've truly learned something," said Kuntz. 

He seems to have done more than that in the past four years. Kuntz has gone that extra 
mile and has made sacrifices so that dreams could come true for the men and women's 

"It's not necessarily where I'm at, but what I'm doing. I want people to learn and feel 
motivated by their accomplishments." 

With a love for the game of soccer, Kuntz feels that his father and mother have 
contributed a great deal to his success as a coach. 

"There is one thing that my father has taught me, and that is to be humble and 
appreciative of everyone for what they are worth." 

With this positive attitude, Kuntz has gone on to win Coach of the Year at CLU in 1988 
and 1991. 

"I would rather be remembered as a successful teacher than as a great coach. We 
become successful coaches when we learn how to teach, read situations and analyze." 

Hill manager of the year 
in the Cape Cod League 

By Rick Wilson and John Anthony 


Rich Hill, Cal Lutheran's head baseball coach, capped off an extraordinary year, as he 
led the Chatham A's to the Cape Cod Baseball League Championship. 

The A's defeated the Cotuit Kettelers in the championship game 3-2 in 12 innings, as 
Steve Duda of the NCAA Division I champion Pepperdine Waves pitched 1 1 innings. 
Hill won the Mike Curran Award as Manager of the Year in the Cape Cod League, 
recognized as the premier summer collegiate baseball league. 

Hill coached the East Coast-based A's the previous three summers, and led his team 
to an Eastern Division Championship in 1991. 

Hill will return to coach the Kingsmen in 1993, after leading thel992 squad to a 43- 
6 record, a No. 1 ranking in Division III, runnerup in the Division III World Series and 
a SCIAC championship. Through five seasons as head coach for CLU, Hill has an 
outstanding winning percentage of more than 70 percent, with 162 wins and only 69 
1 osses. 

Hill, a physical education instructor at CLU, is also a receiver coach for the Kingsmen 
football team. 



FootbalL.(September 12) Pomona-Pitzer Colleges - 27, Kingsmen - 21 
CLU dropped to 0-1 . Bright notes in the contest for the Kingsmen included Adam

scamper and.caught three passes for 25 yards. Tight end Scott Wheeler caught seven 
passes for 60 yards including a 22-yard touchdown and Lcn Bradley caught six 
passes for 1 10 yards. Safety-punter Pete Pistone had a fine game as he had 18 tackles 
and an intercption to go along with a 37.7 average per punt (6 punts for 226 yards). 
Linebacker Chris Sestito had 16 tackles while Pete Leao finished with eight tackles 
including four for losses totaling 20 yards. Defensive lineman Tom Pellegrino had

Women's cross country 
lacks quantity in 1992 


By Gretchen Gies 


On Sept. 1 the starting gun fued and the smoke cleared, but only a small women's cross 
country team took off for the 1992 season. 

Head Coach Hector Nieves, in his seventh season, is understandably discouraged "This 
is my smallest showing since I began," states Nieves. In fact, the three returning women do 
not match the sizable team of 1 1 last year. 

"I have to admire the women that are still out here," insists Nieves. The Regals lack new 
runners, but sophomores Jill Feuss, Erin Meyer, and Jennifer Noggle are laced up and 
anticipating the awkward season facing the small group. 

Meyer explains, "It's discouraging because we need a team to place at the meets " On the 

practicing everyday." 

Obviously the makeup of the team has changed. Nieves explains that the outlook for the 
program will turn from team competition to more individualized training and acheiving 
specific goals. 6 

Not only will racing change drastically, but so will the training means leading up to the 
races. "Running is already a lonely sport but with fewer women out this season it will place 
more strain on training," Nieves points out. 

Despite the lack of quantity, Nieves insists that quality can be produced from the 
individuals. Like previous seasons, the runners will work on a sufficient base of training and 
slowly progress for a peak at the NCAA Regional Championships at Mills College in 
Oakland Nov. 14. 

The women traveled to the Whittier Invitational Saturday and saw Fuess take 73rd in 
23:39.1 and Meyer take 120th at 28:27.9.

Men's cross country is in direct contrast to the women's team this year. It seems as though 
the teams have switched images; the men have a larger young team compared to the three- 
man showing last season. 

According to second-year head coach Mau Griffin, there are currently nine men on the 
team. Dedicated standout Rick DeLeon begins his junior season as the only returner 

Composing the bulk of the team are two junior transfers, three sophomores and three 
freshmen. All have at least a running background in high school. 

Apart from the lack of collegiate experience, team and individual oudooks are encourag- 
ing. There are many new faces out here who are very dedicated to the team IforseeKreat 
improvements," said Griffin. 

DeLeon agrees it's completely different running with a team rather than alone or with one 
other teammate. "I like the strength in a team-centered atmosphere," says DeLeon 

Turning the attention to DeLeon, Griffin suspects that he is a likely individual qualifier for 
Nanonals (site pending) Nov. 21. Last year DeLeon had difficulties in the last 400m of the 
8000m Regional Championship race. 

Tve put in some heavy miles, 80-90 miles a week this summer, so I feel confident about 
the beginning of the season," indicates DeLeon. 

Without a doubt a positive aura surrounds the new large team. Griffin is confident with 
the schedule facing the young team. "After a couple weeks, once we get into the swing of 
dungs, we will be able to shake some people up," Griffin confidenUy states 

At the Whittier Invitational this weekend, the Kingsmen placed 14th out of 24 teams 
Azusa Pacific University "Team A", took first with 60 points while APUs "Team B" took

Intramurals offer fun 
competition in the sun 

By Gretchen Gies 


This is the time of the year when anyone who has a name and a student ID is 
bombarded by various clubs, organizations, and activities who are recruiting members 
to "get involved." Without question there are many organizations that are worth a 
student's time and talents. 

However, if you are just looking for some FUN with other students, faculty, and staff, 
then Intramurals is your ticket. 

The Intramural program is a friendly co-ed competition in various athletic games 
such as flag football, volleyball, basketball and softball. In addition to the usual 
scheduled sports, badminton and tennis tournaments have been organized. 

Finally, Intramurals sponsors the popular end of the year extravaganza, CLU Beach 
Day. Student Coordinator Cheryl Ashenbach describes the festivities as "one last 
student fling before the stress of finals." 

Director Don Bielke states that this program has "high exposure." Seventy-five 

percent of students participate in the intramural program in one form or another. This 

statistic includes the 500 plus students who head to Zuma for Beach Day each year. 

Active student involvement spurs from the enjoyable, but sometimes intense, 

competition and rivalry between peers. 

Currently, flag football is under way. Games are played on Sunday afternoons at the 
soccer field located north of Olsen Road. 

If one needs more information or has an activity that can be organized in the future 
to contact the Student Coordinators Cheryl Ashenbach and Brady Day or Bielke. 
Intramurals offers sun, fun and friends just around the comer. 

Because results of the flag football are not available until Sunday evening - after the 
Echo deadline - they will appear in the following week's newspaper along with 
standings and individual game highlights when ver they are made available.

teams are in the Southern California 
Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. 

So what the football team lost its first 
official SCIAC game, they can still take the 
SCIAC title . . Just continue to show your 
support for both the Kingsmen and the Regals 
and maybe even attend an away game this 
year. . .Wow what a concept, go out of your 
way to see a friend. 

Maybe if CLU continues to show support 
for its athletic teams, then someday CLU 
may gel that North Athletic Complex that it 
has been talking about for sometime. 

I doubt it will happen this year, so maybe if 
you plan on attending a CLU playoff game 
this year plan a weekend event down at San 
Diego, because that will be the place CLU 
will play. Maybe go to Sea World, Del Mar, 
Old Town orjustcross the border have agood

Putting all that aside, and back again about

Kingsmen fail in revenge match vs. Pomona 

Kingsmen's four-game winning streak halted by Sagehens 27-21 


By Rick Wilson 


What was supposed to be sweet re venge for the 
Kingsmen turned out to be bitter as the 
Sagehens from Pomona-Pitzer Colleges de- 
feated Cal Lutheran 27-21 Saturday in the 
season opening football game at CLU. 

The Kingsmen, expected to contend for the 
Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic 
Conference title this year, had gone 4-1 ver- 
sus SCIAC teams last season with Pomona 
being the only team not playing CLU last 
season, depriving them of a possible co- 
SCIAC title with the University of Redlands. 

The host Kingsmen took a 14-7 lead into 
the locker room at the half, after trailing 7-0 
early on in the first quarter. 

The Sagehens struck first as running back 
Tony Fadulu plunged in from 2 yards away 
with 4:44 left in the first. CLU answered 
back as southpaw quarterback Adam Hacker 
drilled tight end Scott Wheeler for a 22-yard 

On the afternoon, Hacker completed 21 of 
35 passes for 248 yards with one touchdown 
and one interception. Wheeler finished with 
a team-high seven receptions for 60 yards. 

Freshman fullback Ivan Moreno gave the 
Kingsmen its first lead with a 15-yard scam- 
per into the end zone. Moreno finished the 
game with 24 yards rushing on just five 
carries and caught three passes for 25 yards. 

Entering the third, seemingly in control of 
the ball game, CLU tailback Cassidy 
O'S ulli van had a 45-yard run called back due 
to a penalty. Just moments later, O'Sulli van 
would fumble the ball and the Sagehens 
recovered gaining much needed momentum. 
At the 4:20 point, Pomona quarterback

Dena Foose was elected president of the 
freshman class Sept 21 with nearly 60 per- 
cent of the vote after being forced into a run- 
off last week by classmate Ana Delia Ruiz. 
Neither student had received the manda- 
tory 50 percent-plus-one vote required to 
win in the initial race Sept. 14 so they met at 
the polls again last Monday. 

Foose received 59.9 percent of the vote 
and is the new freshman class president. 
Ruiz received 40.1 percent.

Female students report two 
'flash' incidents in library, park 

By Laryssa Kreiselmeyer 


Two female undergraduate students were 
the victims of indecent exposure in sepa- 
rate incidents involving two male non-stu- 
dents on the CLU campus Sept.10 and 12. 
On the evening of Sept. 10, one of the 
women was in the Pearson Library when a 
man in his late 30s indecently exposed 
himself to her. She reported the cccurrance 
to Campus Security and the Thousand Oaks 
police department was contacted also as 

friends of the victim witnessed the man 
getting into his car. The friends got a de- 
scription of the car and the license plate 
number, and the police stopped and ar- 
rested the suspect. The student is expected 
to press charges. 

A second incident occurred on Saturday 
afternoon in Kingsmen Park as a CLU 
student noticed a man in his early 20s 
improperly touching himself near a tree. 
The student did not report the episode but 
a nearby witness did. The suspect was not

Thousand Oaks has been yet another city 
that has become an arena for an increasing 
number of hate crimes and racial tension. 

A comic book store owned by Myron 
Cohen-Ross suffered an estimated 5290,000 
i n damages Sept. 1 7 from a fire that Ventura 
County Fire Department officials have de- 
termined was the work of arsonists. 
The words "Die Jew" along with swatikas 
and other graffiti were scrawled across the 
front wall of the Heroes and Legends comic 
book store on Thousand Oaks Boulevard 
the night it was burned. 

'It's a disaster, because I'm obviously 
underinsured," Cohen-Ross told reporters. 

Allstate Insurance, Antique Suite Mall 
and TLC Hair and Nail Boutique, which 
occupy the same mall, sustained lesser dam- 

Members of the community, however, 
are rallying to Cohen-Ross' support. An 
account has been set up by Rene Rodriguez 
of R&R Machines at First S tale Bank of the 
Oaks in Newbury. Meanwhile, a rally in 
support of Cohen-Ross was held in a local 
church this past weekend. 
"I think the support is a wonderful thing," 
HodaMahmoudi, CLU professor of sociol- 
ogy responded, but added, "This has to 
happen before a crime is commiued. 

"We need to be proactive rahter than 
reactive. I'm not trying to simplify the 
problem, but the human mind is capable of 
transcending these roblems so that we can 
all be comfortable." 

Some people, however, remain uncom- 
fortable with the concept. The attack on 
Jews was prominent news last week. A 
number of synagogues in Conejo Valley's 
Jewish community have also been the tar- 
gets for similar acts of violence. The temples 
were burned as well. 

Simi Valley and Los Angeles have had 
their share of racially motivated violence as 

well. Simi Valley is still feeling the reper- 
cussions for being the site of the trial of four 
white Los Angeles Police Department of- 
ficers charged in the Rodney King beating. 
Twice in recent months, including just two 
weeks ago, white supremacist Richard 
Barrett staged a rally after failing to obtain 
a permit from Simi Valley officials to hold 
a parade along with the rally. 

Barrett had held a rally June 6 in support 
of the four officers who were acquitted on 
all but one of the charges. Violence erupted 
between Barrett's followers and those op- 
posed to his views. Local groups such as 
Neighbors Against Nazis sprang up to chal- 
lenge Barrett and his controversial ideas. 

The Los Angeles Unified School District 
is dealing with its own dilemma with regard 
to racial tension. The Los Angeles Times 
has reported that seething racial tensions are 
flaring with such increasing vigor that edu- 
cators are being forced to re-evaluate the 
extent to which students are actually learn- 
ing because of the racial tensions in the 
classrooms as well as other locations on 

"I came out of chorus one day and 'Nigga* 
was painted across five lockers," said a 
black 12-year-old in the Times article. "I 
was so frightened."

3 students vie for Pep Athletics Comissioner position 

By Amy Anderson 


In a three-way race for Pep Athletics 
Comissioner, junior Angela Chant, junior 
Michelle Milius, and sophomore Marcie 
Hegebush will get a chance to convince 
students who to vote for as they will give 
speeches on Sept. 28 in the Student Union 
Building, announced ASCLU Vice-Presi- 
dent Kristine Strand at the Sept 23 Senate 

The elections for Pep Athletics will be 
held Sept. 29. A voting both will be set up 
in front of the cafeteria. 

In other Senate action, ASCLU Senate 
President Jason Russell attended a four- 
day Lutheran Leadership conference in 
Minnesota with junior Sal Frias, junior 
Kjersti BergandRonald Kragthorpe, CLU's 
dean of student affairs, last week. 

Although not present at the Sept 23 
Senate meeting, Russell welcomed by fax 
the new freshman class officers: President 
Dena Foose, Vice President Kristi 
Rikansmd, Treasurer Kathryn Bergsma and 
Secretary Cynthia Spafford. 

"It was exciting to see such a large re- 
sponse for the four leadership positions 
available," Russell wrote to the officers. 
'Take pride in knowing that you were 
selected by your peers and try to under- 
stand the trust and responsibility that was 
placed upon you at that time. 

"Your class seems eager to get involved 
and shows the enthusiasm that all of the 
other classes, including my own, wish to 
have. Take advantage of that opportunity 
and try to involve as many people as pos-

The actual figure is $7,400. The Kairos 
production account is receiving $4,000 and 
the contingency account, which can be ac- 
cessed by any club upon approval of the 
senate, is receiving $3,400. 

The junior class car wash Sept. 19 raised 
about $100. A class meeting on Sept. 28 at 

7 p.m. in the East Hall lounge is the next 
project for the juniors. 

The senior class also had a pool party 
from noon until 3 p.m. Sept 26 with Sub- 
way sandwiches and cash prizes. El Torito 
Day for the seniors is Sept 30. About 25 
percent of students' tabs will go into the

Senate approved an additional $480.09.

and become close early in the year. She 
explained that while many classes do not 
become involved until their junior or senior 
year, she intends for her class to show spirit 
and get involved now as freshmen. 

Foose, a commuter student, wants other 
commuter students to take part in on-cam- 
pus activities and events. She feels this could 
be done by having commuter students main- 
tain close contact with their peer advisers. 

Peer advisers could contact commuters to 
let them know about an event at CLU. 

Foose said she has many ideas for fresh- 
men fund-raisers. She felt the recently held 
car wash on campus was a great success and 
another should be planned. Candygrams, a 
rummage sale and benefit dances are also 
some of her ideas. She feels that often the 
most typical fund raisers work best. 

Foose also wants to organize some ath- 
letic events such as volleyball tournaments, 
innertube water-polo and dorm basketball 

While there were claims of dirty politics 

and questionable campaign tactics during 
the race, Gildard claims mat it really was 
not evident in the race she was in. 

Gildard feels that unethical tactics in a 
campus political race is reflective as to how 
politics really are. She feels that some stu- 
dents take the race too far and forget that 
they are running to represent their class and 
better their school. 

As the new vice president, Rikansrud said 
she is excited to attend the Senate meetings. 
She wants to start organizing her ideas. 
Freshman trips, such as Knott's Berry Farm 
are some things she plans to work for. 

'Where in world' 
talks continue 

"Where in the World are We?" is the 
theme for a series of lectures on campus 
at 10 a.m. on Mondays through Nov. 9 in 
the Preus-Brandt Forum. The theme cor- 
relates with three major events: the 500- 
year anniversary of Columbus' voyage 
of discovery and encounter with the New 
World, the presidential elections, and 
CLU's inauguration of a new core cur- 
riculum and a new president 

Speakers include CLU professors of 
history and political science, discussing 
the legacy and impact of Columbus, along 
with Robert Scheer, a national corre- 
spondent for the Los Angeles Times, 
speaking on American politics and soci- 
ety today. The CLU Political Science 
Department will sponsor a panel on the 
1992 presidential elections with analysis 
of issues, predictions and possible out- 
comes. Environmental activist Stephanie

Sale dispells myths about 
Columbus, promotes book 

Historian, lecturer journalist comes to forum 

By Maristella Contreras 

Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492. 
Remember saying that as a child in hopes 
of remembering the year in which Christo- 
pher Columbus discovered America? Well, 
forget it all; Kirkpatrick Sale, a guest 
speaker at the Preus-Brandt Forum on 
Monday, spoke about this and many other 
myths about Columbus, and how he has 
affected our ecological system. 

Sale, a self-professed amateur of history, 
as well as a highly regarded lecturer, jour- 
nalist, ecologist and author, spoke to a 
half-filled forum crowd, answering ques- 
tions and promoting his new book, 'The 
Conquest of Paradise: Christopher Colum- 
bus and the Columbian Legacy." 

In his new book, Sale writes about how 
Columbus is a major reason for the crum- 
bling of our ecological system, another 
facet of his lecture. 

After some jest as to the celebration of a 
man who supposedly discovered the wrong 
country. Sale got to the core of his lecture, 
which was aimed at dispelling some of the 
myths in which we believe to be true about 
Sale had many points to bring to light. 

The first was that Christopher Columbus 
did not die over America; it had actually 
been discovered about 1 ,000 years prior to 
his landing by the Vikings. 
Another myth: Columbus died not know- 
ing that he had discovered America instead 
of Asia. Sale claimed Columbus knew of his 

According to Sale, Columbus does de- 
serve credit because he announced his find- 
ings and declared what he found to the king 
and queen of Spain, one of the most power- 
ful countries at the lime, and the provider of 
his ships. 

However, Columbus was nothing but a 
greedy liar, who believed that "nature is 
cruel" and that "humans have the right over 
all habitat," according to Sale. Apparently 
this attitude was either accepted or over- 
looked by the Spaniards, who gave Colum- 
bus the utilities needed to return to the New 
World several times to stake his claims. It 
was this attitude, according to Sale, that has 
caused America to still be suffering from the 
harmful ecological effects of Columbus's 

For instance, from 1492 to about 1592 
there were about 1 20 million Indians. In less 
than one century, about 5 to 7 million 
Indians were left. About 95 to 97 percent of

these Indians were destroyed by diseases 
brought over by the white man. 

Also, the Europeans took from the land 
what they could, and they did not take 
responsibility for their actions, which in 
turn destroyed the land and its inhabitants. 
To the Indians, life was sacred and they 
respected "mother nature." 

When Christopher Columbus came he 

brought people. As more people came, 
progress began to take place and with it he 
came what we now call modem day tech- 

In Sale's closing comments he said that 
we should adopt to die Indians' philosophy; 
being aware of nature's needs and to adjust 
to our current technology, which attacks

There have been few cases of these types 
at CLU in the past years. The last reported 
was two years ago, according to Bill Stott, 
CLU's assistant dean for student affairs. 

Stott stressed that while the university 
cannot possibly prevent crimes from hap- 
pening on the campus, it can educate stu- 
dents about how to avoid dangerous situa- 

"Crime will happen anywhere there is a 
high concentration of people, as on a col- 
lege campus," Stott said. 

Memos were sent to all students, notify- 
ing them of the crimes committed against 
the two students. Stott said that in accor- 
dance with a new federal law, called the 
Right to Know law, students have access to 
school crime rates in order to be aware of 

the statistics on the campus. 

Most vital to the well-being of a student is 
awareness of others and surroundings. 

Some helpfull hints from the Office of 
Residence Life: Avoid walking or running 
alone at night, isolated places, alleys, park- 
ing lots, or other shortcuts. Keep doors to 
dorm rooms locked. Check the backseat of 
a car before getting in. Park in well-lighted 
places. Even a course in self-defense is a 
good idea for students who must travel 

For women especially, there is the threat 
of rape or other assault. It is recommended 
that if attacked, women should attempt to 
think of their position in a realistic way. 
Yelling, hitting, or biting could win an op- 
portunity for escape but could also lead to 
further harm. 

Passive resistance, which includes telling 
the attacker you're diseased, menstruating, 
vomiting or urinating, may also be a means 
of escape.

Enrollment rise is a 'trend throughout higher education'

If these problems sound familar, rest as- 
sured there's an explanation. Plain and sim- 
ply, there is an increase in the number of 
students attending CLU this year over last 

According to Bill Stott, director of resi- 
dence life, the dorms this year are "rela- 
tively full." There are currently 834 stu- 
dents living on campus, which means the 
dorms are about 95.8 percent full. 

On Sept. 1, 1989, there were 843 students 
living on campus.

A four-year trend relative to birth rates 
that dictates how many students attend col- 
leges. In 1986, 1987 and 1988 CLU had a 
large amount of students on campus. As a 
result, the dorms were filled and there were 
often five people living in one room. In 
1989, 1990, and 1991 there were less stu- 
dents living not only at CLU but at other 
colleges and universities as well. 

"I predict, by the fall of '94, we'll be 
above capacity in the halls," Stott added. 

On Sept 1, 1991. there were 839 people 

living in the halls. On SepL 1 of this year, 
that number was 855. The number decreased 
this year after the two- week room freeze at 
the beginning of the year. 

Stott said the Sept. 1 number is high and 
it lessens a bit during the room freeze when 
everyone who is scheduled to live on cam- 
pus is accounted for. 

"Everything is pretty situated right now," 
Stott said. "There' s a good number of people 
that have housing." 

Stott also said that 1 5 to 20 people usually 
change rooms after the room freeze, but 
only a bundle have moved this year. Stott 
added that it is "easier to operate if 5 percent 
of your housing is available" so that stu- 
dents can move if they want to.

Although the Los Angeles Unified School 
District is 85 percent minority and draws its 
64,000 students from almost every nation 
in the world, multicultural education has 
largely been relegated to a series of enter-

to divide students rather than enligh ten them , 
the Times reported. 

The celebrations that feature ballet 
folklorico dancers on Cinco de Mayo and 
dancing dragons on Chinese New Year and

viewed by many as a kind of educational 
tokenism that can further entrench stereo- 

Some reform in curriculum is already 
under way that includes previously ignored

Increase in campus plagiarism 

By College Press Service 
and Joel Ervice 


A marginal student, at the end of the 
semester, turns in a major paper that is 
academically perfect — brilliant 
thoughts, wonderful analogies and in- 
sightful analysis. 

Unfortunately, the words aren't his. 

The student has taken paragraphs, ver- 
batim, out of a research book and in- 
cluded them in his paper without citing 
the author. In real terms, the student is a 
thief — he is stealing someone else's 
work and passing it off as his own. 

Plagiarism, which comes from Latin, 
meaning kidnapper or literary thief, brings 
up a plethora of knotty problems for 
students and academicians. 

If a professor suspects a student of 
plagiarism, how should the case be 
handled? Do students get enough back- 
ground on plagiarism to understand what 
it is? With rapid advances in the ability to 
make copies and printouts of print and 
electronic media, how does modern tech- 
nology fit into the scheme of defining 
plagiarism and its consequences? 

These questions tend to muddy an al- 
ready gray area. 

Plagiarism has existed as long as people 
have written, and di spite widespread 
knowledge that it is a form of academic 
cheating, it still is practiced — even at 
small schools like Cal Lutheran. 

Dr. Nathan Tiereny of the Philosophy 
department at CLU remarked that he has 
encountered plagiarism before. In most 
cases, he relates, the student has simply 
copied a sentence and has not cited the 
source, often because the piece sounded 

better, or more clearly conveyed the stu- 
dents point. He also stated that there are a 
lot "of people unclear about plagerism," 
and they may not realize that copying a 
single sentence is wrong. 

Tiereny went on to add that more seri- 
ous cases of plagiarism, where the student 
copies "with intent to hide the source," do 
exist. "This kind of plagiarism is much 
rarer, but I know of cases where it has 
happened," he said. 

It is difficult to put a definitive number 
on the rate of plagiarism cases. According 
to Dr. Melvyn Haberman of the English 
department at CLU, the occurance of 
plagerism is "very hard to gage." Many 
cases may be dealt with privately between 
the instructor and student, while other 
cases may go before a panel of students 
and faculty members for consideration 
and possible punishment. 

But no matter how severe the repercus- 
sions, those students that cruise through 
their four years of college by means of 
plagiarism are losing out on something 
even greater — their education — in the long 

"If students do not understand the im- 
portance of doing their work and being 
honest intellectually, they will fail to un- 
derstand that when they get into the work 
world," said Elizabeth Baer , dean of fac- 
ulty at Gustavus Adolphus College in 
Minnesota. "It is necessary for colleges to 
get students to understand the gravity of 
it. We need to help the students to under- 
stand that it is not acceptable." 

Plagiarism occurs at all levels of col- 
lege, from the freshmen year to doctoral 
work. Some cases that have received ex- 
tensive publicity, according to The

The Student Union Building has always 
been a place for students and faculty to 
relax between classes and a place to take 
a break from studying in the library. 

But this year's SUB might beckon stu- 
dents to stay just a little longer. 

In addition to the big-screen television 
VCR and stereo, students will find four 
new video games, a new ping-pong table 
and a compact disc jukebox that plays a 
wide variety of music ranging from coun- 
try to heavy metal.

Guild for a second pool table as well.

FLA sends 
students to 

By Jeronimo Esquivel 


An event sponsored by Future Leaders 
of America gave two CLU students an 
opportunity to visit Washington D.C. and 
the White House. Constantino Lopez, and 
Joel Gaxiola were part of a group of 100 
students from California and Mexico. 
Gil Cuevas, thecurrentpresidentoi'FLA, 
started the organization in the early '80s. 
FLA is designed to teach young Latino 
students skills in leadership through ac- 
tivities and speakers. It also encourages 
and motivates students to pursue higher 

The purpose of the Washington trip was 
to unite outstanding Latino students from 
Mexico and California. All the partici- 
pants made an effort to learn as such as 
they could from their visits to the 
Smithsonian Institute, George 
Washington's house and other historical 

Tthe students learned about the Free 
Trade agreement, but some of the tour 
commentaries seemed more like Bush cam- 
paign publicity than educational informa- 
tion, according to Gaxiola. 

Lopez and Gaxiola reported that seeing 
our government process both from an 
American and a Mexican point of view 
enhanced their knowledge in a way that no 
classroom setting could. Both students 
were grateful that FLA offered them the 
chance to travel to Washington. 


ASCLU Vice President Kristine Strand 
said that in the previous years the SUB was 
only open when a Senate officer was present. 
According to Strand, people were hired to 
make sure that the doors were locked after 

"I would like to see an increase in the use 
of the SUB," Strand said, "Especially now 
that closing hours have been extended to 12 
midnight on weekdays and 2 a.m . on Fridays 
and Saturdays. 

All the new equipment for the SUB was 
paid for by Campus Activities, Strand said

America needs a young leisure class, 
but leisure doesn't mean lazy minds 

Lance T. Young 
Opinion Editor 

I was thinking the other day and I was 
thinking that it is ironic how little time I 
have to actually think. All summer I was 
able to ponder ideas and things of an ab- 
stract nature but upon returning to school, 
I once again am too consumed by classes 
and homework and work etc. to have many 
intellectual thoughts. 

This seems to be some cruel paradox. 
How absurd that at a center of academic 
and intellectual life I don't have time to 
think. Sure, I do homework and read for 
my classes, but much of it is hurried. 

The main problem is that college is too 
expensive to learn everything one would 

like. The plan seems to be to take as many 
classes as one can in order to graduate early 
or as soon as possible. This is like saving all 
your studying until the night before the 
final. In short, most people leave college 
without an adequate amount of knowledge. 
Yes, they have a degree, outclasses were so 
crammed and their studying so shallow that 
many are mere dilettantes who have only a 
superficial knowledge of anything they stud- 
ied, if they can remember anything at all. 

I would like to take my time and learn as 
much as I can, as well as I can, but our 
system is not set up that way. Society tells us 
we must graduate quickly (most businesses 
don' t give a damn how smart you are as long 
as you've got a degree from some univer- 
sity) and join the workforce where we can be 
beneficial to the system. Besides, I don't 
have enough money and most likely will 
never see enough money to give myself a 
truly adequate education. America needs a

Nervous about both presidential candidates 

Opinion Writer 

It is just around the corner and I don't 
know what I am going to do about it I can 
procrastinate before homework and reports, 
but this decision is possibly a little more 
monumental (to me anyway) than one day 
of schoolwork. For years I have believed 
that I was fortunate to freely make choices 
about my government; but as the November 
election is no longer distant, something 
makes me feel both nervous and nauseous 
about either candidate winning. 

This will be the first presidential election 
I will take part in. Somehow I remember my 
mother carrying on about voting for the first 
time for Barry Goldwater during a long 
summer night of Trivial Pursuit questions 
played without the board and those obnox- 
ious pieces of pie that always get stuck 
because I put them in the wrong way. And 
I ruminate ... what will I tell my children? 
Certainly I can't tell them that I didn't vote. 

I can tell them that Ross Perot didn't say 
much, but it sounded better than the long- 
winded speeches on family values by a man 
with as much charisma as my dog and the 
confessions of a non-inhaling candidate 
who is proud of a state ranking last in 
education with roads that no school bus 
coulddare travel on. I believe that there was 
hope for Perot, but at least now we know he 

is a wimp. 

I can't believe that such an immense land 
with so many good things to offer is stuck in 
a situation like this one. I have to admit that 
I take a more conservative approach to the 
election; one where an older, wiser, and 
more experienced candidate should win, 
yet it's difficult when his running mate 
counter-balances all of the above on na- 
tional television every other day. 

This is our country at stake. It seems as 
though citizens have completely forgotten 
how horrible the economy is and how slowly 
we have lost our status economically in the 
world. If things do not turn around, we will 
be put in our place by the nations that will no 
longer be third world. And what is Bill 
Clinton doing? Playing his saxaphone on 
the Arsenio Hall Show. It's all show. 

/ believe that there was 
hope for Perot, but at least 
now we know he is a wimp. 

Throughout this whole election the media 
has insisted on making the biggest issues of 
the tabloid-type exploits of both parties. It 
has completely detracted from the answers 
of important questions being heard, and 
unfortunately it seems like there are not 
many efforts to change this, which creates 
quite an interesting commentary on the 
mentality and political awareness of the 
average American. 

Half of the time I feel like saying "To hell 
with the system," yet I have no where to run 
or hide. 

Our generation can change the course of I believe true freedom to choose lies in 

this nation, yet the lackadaisical attitude the education of the mind that is able; as for 

and blatant ignorance of many may bring my educated mind, I have chosen the lesser 

this country to ruin. of the two evils.

Abortion decision: a step in right direction or backwards 

I do understand the need 
for regulation, but I feel 
this regulation should not 
in anyway be oppressive.

the rest of the bill violates 
my rights as a women by 
infringing on my rights to

Less choices not 'reasonable'; 
womens' freedom affected 

By Kirsten Shaw 


Is it really a surprise that abortion rights 
advocates are unhappy with the Supreme 
Court' s recent abortion decision? True, its 
ruling on Planned Parenthood Casey reaf- 
firmed the theoretical right of a woman to 
terminate a pregnancy, as guaranteed by 
its 1973 Roe vs. Wade ruling. For that, 
pro-choice activists were expected to be 

But by upholding the so-called "reason- 
able restrictions" of the Pennsylvania law, 
ostensibly seeking political middle ground , 

the high court has succeeded only in com- 
promising women's fundamental rights. 

Conservative America has long hailed 
the American tradition of freedom — inde- 
pendence of speech and thought and the 
liberty to pursue happiness and enjoy free- 
dom from state intrusion. Government, it 
is held, has a limited role in the life of the 

Apparently these freedoms do not ex- 
tend to women. Freedom does not seem to 
include the right to make decisions about 
one's own body. 

The court's Casey ruling reasserts a 
woman's fundamental right to make re- 
productive decisions and yet simulta- 
neously nullifies that right by insisting 
that states are free to enact laws that re- 
strict it — laws that suggest that women 
aren't capable of making important deci- 
sions, that they will enter into these deci- 
sions lightly without "proper" state en- 
forced controls. 

States are given the freedom to choose to 
restrict abortion rights while women are 
denied that same freedom. Contrary to 
that tradition so valued by Americans, the 
stage thus assumes the role of moral 
deliberator that has historically been left 
to the individual. Does the state pretend to 
possess a loftier understanding of when 
abortion is moral and when it is immoral? 

By withdrawing from the individual the 
right to examine moral considerations and 
make achoice, as it did in the Casey ruling, 
the Supreme Court has revealed mat it 

suffers from a conventional bias. Some 
Americans still do not believe that women 
are capable of acting as moral agents. They 
think that , just as in the past they were 
controlled by patriarchal husbands, women 
still need patriarchs — in this case the court — 
to make the really "big" decisions. 

The court and many legislators evidently 
feel that a 24-hour "cooling off' period will 
help a woman to regain her senses and shake 
off the emotional feebleness so characteris- 
tic of her sex. Butdoes anyone really believe 
that without a state mandate, a woman will 
not pause to consider her options? Presum- 
ably, the court feels 24 hours and a state- 
contrived lecture by her doctor wili set her 

Given that the state does not trust indi- 
viduals to weigh moral and practical alter- 
natives in such a situation, it is astounding 
that it allows individuals to bring children 
into the world without restriction. 

By leaving it to a majority of mostly male 
lawmakers in each state to decide how to 
restrict a woman's constitutional right to 
control her reproduction, the court has cre- 
ated the probability that most will legislate 
discrimination. By encouraging state regu- 
lation, the court has demonstrated that while 
Roe vs. Wade supposedly guarantees a 
woman ' s constitutional right to make repro- 
ductive decisions, all women in America 
are not equal. 

When, due to burdensome restrictions, it 
becomes virtually impossible to get an abor- 
tion in one state, a wealthy, mobile woman 
is still free to cross state, even national, 
boundaries to exercise her rights. 

Poor women are in a diffecult situation 
and so are women with abusive husbands or 
parents. Their rights are effectively denied 
them by practical circumstance and, more 
importantly, by the failure of their state 
government to preserve the rights of all its 
citizens regardless of their race, religion, 
sex, or socioeconomic condition. 

While women in the rest of the developed 

world enjoy virtually unhindered access to 

abortion and autonomy over their reproduc

Court didn't do enough; Roe vs 
Wade damaging, needs fixing 

By Christina Diaz 


No matter how the justices said it, the 
result was clear and unmistakable. In a 
stunning 5-4 decision, the justices clearly 
and completely reaffirmed Roe v. Wade 
as a positive decision for our country. 
Any willingness that the Court had shown 
in the past few years to rectify the damage 
done to our nation by the tragic 1973 Roe 
v. Wade decision was completely eradi- 

The pro-abortion forces of the country 
wailed that they were dealt a loss because 
the court upheld the moderate regula- 
tions of the Pennsylvania Abortion Con- 
trol Act (The Supreme Court upheld regu- 
lations supported by a vast majority of 
Americans, including parental consent, 
24-hour waiting period and informed 
consent). But the second half of their 
decision was the strong and vehement 
reaffirmation of Roe. 

Roe has been hailed as landmark deci- 
sion. It is also a decision that has cost our 
generation dearly. Since 1973, abortion, 
cloaked in the euphemistic terms of 
"choice," "reproductive freedom," and a 
"woman's right," has taken the lives of 
26 million unborn children. Thai's 
roughly the equivalent of one-third of our 

Beneath the patriotic and emotion-filled 
slogans of "a women's right to control 
her own body," and "every child a wanted 
child," lie the cold, hard realities of abor- 
tion. The reality of abortion is that with 
every single abortion, an innocent un- 
born child loses its life. The abortion not 
only takes the life of the unborn child, it 
forever changes the life of the woman. 
These are the truths that you won't hear 
from the abortion advocates. Consider 
these additional facts: 

•The majority of abortions are per- 
formed before the 12th week. By that 
time all body systems are present and 
functioning, brain waves are detectable, 
and the unborn child's heart is still beat- 


•There are 1.6 million abortions per- 
formed every single year. Thai's 4,320 a 
day, 180 per hour, three per minute, and 
one every 20 seconds. 

•Abortion poses serious risks to women, 
both psychological and physical. Some of 
the physical complications of abortion 
may be: excessive bleeding and cramp- 
ing, fever/cold sweats, intense pain, in- 
fections and vomiting. An abortion may 
also result in a woman's inability later on 
in life to conceive a child, miscarriages, 
scarring of the uterus, or even stillbirths. 

■Aside from the physical com jttidfctions, 
abortion can also inflict severe emotional 
trauma to the woman. Studies have shown 
that the emotional reactions might in- 
clude: guilt and extreme depression, an- 
ger, rage, suicidal urges, uncontrollable 
crying and feelings of intense grief, espe- 
cially when seeing other babies or young 

These are only a few of the facts that you 
won't hear at the local abortion clinic. 
Why aren't women given this basic infor- 
mation before making a life and death 
decision and undergoing an abortion? Pro- 
abortion organizations, like Planned Par- 
enthood and the National Abortion Rights 
Action League, have continually opposed 
any "right-to-know" bills that would en- 
sure that a doctor be required to give 
women all the information they need to 
make an informed decision. 

How can the decision to abort, to will- 
fully end the life of an unborn child, be 
considered a woman's "right" when she is 
denied full and complete information 
about the developing unborn child, the 
alternatives to abortion, and the physical 
and emotional risks that accompany abor- 
tion? True feminism and honest respect 
for women does not make a woman feel 
compelled to kill her own child in order to 
survive in this society. 

The abortion controversy tears at the 
very fabric and heart of what it means to 
be a society. It affects the very core of

Lollapalooza creates need for living in a tree 

Jay Ashkinos 
Echo Staff Writer 

I read an article about the Lollapalooza 
festival in last week's Echo and I thought 
"Hey! "maybe I should introduce the world 
(or at least CLU) to my experience at this 
fine cultural gathering. 

Like the ticket says "Take the day off," so 
I did (I don't need much encouragement). 
The day went something like this: I 
cruised into the Irvine Meadows 
Amphitheatre with time to spare, making 
sure to check the second stage to see which 
bands were playing there before heading up 
to see Lush. 

Lush was really cool. Not just the music, 
but singer Miki Berenyi dyed her hair Kirk 
Cobain (Nirvana) red and drummer Chris 
Acland looked like Jerry Lewis. J had to 
leave towards the end of their set to check 
out one of my favorite local bands, Rage 
Against the Machine, on the second stage. 

The lead singer of Rage is Pauley Shore's 
evil twin (I'm sure of it!). I was jazzed when 
Pearl Jam later brought these guys up to do 
a song with them. 

The seats were completely full (maxi- 
mum capacity, man) when Pearl Jam came 
on. They were very entertaining. The two 
coolest things that happened during their 

set (besides jamming with Rage) was that 
they broke into a Henry Rollins tune in the 
middle of a song and singer Eddie Vedder 
did a duet with a guy from the pit just 
because he was wearing a shirt that said 
"LOSER" on the front (I want one!). 

When the Jesus and Mary Chain went on 
a lot of Lollapalunkheads went down to the 
festival area. What's up with that?!! Just 
because they play like they're at a small 
party with a few friends doesn't mean that 
JMC can't groove. I love those guys! They 
revolutionized the use of feedback as a 
musical outlet JMC took music into a new 
direction. Of course, that's just my opinion. 

So then came Soundgarden. Yeah they 
did! And with them came the crowd. Dur- 
ing their furious set I noticed that ex-Guns 
'n' Roses drummer Steven Adler was sit- 
ting a couple of rows in front of me next to 
LollapaLarry , the name I gave this 50-year- 
old man without a shirt who danced in a 
fried hippie stagger and looked very much 
like Harpo Marx (you know, the one with 
the hom who never said anything). 

Anyway, as I listened to Soundgarden do 
a cover of Body Count's controversial song 
"Cop Killer," the three girls who accompa- 
nied me to the festival (I'm not cool or 
anything, they just used me for the ride, I 
think) bounced down to take a picture of the 
ex-GNR man. I did not care to talk to him. 
How can I respect a guy who is so whacked 
on skunkweed thateven Guns V Roses had 
enough of it? 

Soundgarden finished up as singer Chris 
Cornell broke the msty cage around the 
stage and ran just as I did to catch the Jim 
Rose Circus Sideshow. 

This show was so intense that many 
Lollapaloozers fainted, or hurled, or both. 

The crowd was so packed in that you 
could barely see the act. I quickly, and 
ingeniously I might add, climbed a nearby 
tree (best seat in the house). 

The sideshow was "Beeeeauuuuutiful," 
as Jim Rose would put it. From the human 
dar (board to the Amazing Lifto and all of 
the crazy, impossible, disgusting feats this 
troupe of "freaks" displayed, I was simply 
amazed. I want to be a sideshow freak! 
Mommy, make me a sideshow freak! 

In seeing the sideshow, I missed Ice 
Cube (sob) and sat in to catch some of the 
Ministry set where President Bush came 
out to rap off some lines in the song "New 
World Order." 

I took off though to check out the other 
booths and happenings down below. Ev- 
erything was wrist trinkets and necklaces 
(enough to clothe China). Strewn around 
the booths were hundreds of bumed-out 
Lollapaloozers (wimps). But there was 
nothing of that great of interest to me and 
I needed to get back to check out the Red 
Hot Chili Peppers. 

On the way to the arena, some giant 
Samoan guy offered to sell me his back- 
stage pass (he said he was Meatloaf)- I 
turned him down because it looked like a 

fake. I think he got it out of a box of Cocoa 

The crowd turned euphoric when the Red 
Hots came on (dressed just like they were at 
the MTV awards, except Flea changed his 
underwear, I think), and they did their thing. 
How good were they? Well, to put it 
simply, they set their heads on fire during 
the encore. Point made. And that, my friends, 
was that. 

My day of frolicking came to an end. 
BUT I WANTED MORE! After spending 
an entire day in a mindless blurr of wonder- 
ful culture, I didn't want to return. EVER. 

I thought I would get so much more out 
of life if I let go of the stressful chains that 
bound me to society. I caught up with 
LollapaLarry and asked for his advise. 

He told me to quit school, my job, my 
hockey team, move out, give away my car 
and live in a tree. I'll tell you, it sounded 

I could sit in a tree all day, swooping 
down only to bum change for Dr Peppers. 
I'll talk to myself and nod to imaginary 
people that I consider my real friends. S weet, 

And I'll hum Jimi Hendrix tunes all day. 

Yeah I will! Ha! Free at last! 

And I'll laugh at people who rush, worry, 
do step aerobics and subscribe to Hot Guitar 
magazine (I always have). 

I'll be a happy, crazy, poor, loin cloth- 
wearing. Dr. Pepper-drinking tree-dweller. 

No, I won't

live lives, the rights of American women 
remain at the whim of a court which doubts 
even their ability to behave as rational 

The Republican Party's 1992 platform 
agenda clearly expresses its intent to seek a 
constitutional amendment to ban legal abor- 
tion altogether. And while the Democratic 
platform supports choice, individual mem- 
bers of Congress supply mostly lip service 
in the fight to preserve abortion rights. 

If American women want to ensure that 
their reproductive rights are restored and 

safeguarded once and for all, they will have 
to announce that decision on Nov. 3 by 
electing pro-choice candidates, including 
many more women, to the House and Sen- 
ate and to the White House. 

If the current Congress is not afraid to 
approve anti-choice appointments to the 
Court, and the president is not afraid to 
trumpet his opposition to women's repro- 
ductive rights, perhaps a Congress repre- 
sentative of the American people wouldn't 
be afraid to safeguard rights the overwhelm- 
ing majority of Americans want protected. 

Kirsten Shaw takes the pro-choice view.

Advancement of Public Policy in Washing- 
ton and a 1992 graduate of Ohio Wesleyan

what it means to establish a common under- 
standing and mutual respect for all mem- 
bers of a society. If society is unwilling to 
respect and protect the most defenseless and 
innocent of all its members, how can the 
rights of any member be guaranteed? 

Martin Luther King Jr. , one of the greatest 
dreamers and fighters for equality of all 
time, once said, "Injustice anywhere is a 
threat to justice everywhere." That is no less 
true today than when Dr. King spoke those 
words. The horrible injustices experienced 
by the unborn threaten the rights of all 
people through the erosion of a simple re- 
spect for life. If one person's life, that of any 
unborn child, is dispensable, how can we 
guarantee that anyone's right to life will be 

Abortion advocates tell us that abortion is 
necessary to improve the quality and status 
of women. Look at society now. What has 
improved for women? Percentage of single 

mothers living in poverty? Increased. Is this 
the Utopia that the abortion advocates prom- 
ise us? In my assessment as a feminist, it 
falls dreadfully short of true equality for 
women. Abortion has been handed to 
women as a "quick fix," allowing society to 
escape its true responsibility to women. 

As college students, we are the dreamers. 
We are the ones who are constantly looking 
and searching for a way to make this a better 
world. As pro-life activists, we see to im- 
prove this world by ending the violence and 
destruction inflicted on our nation through 
the practice of abortion. We fight to see that 
this reign of violence ends. We work to 
provide women facing crisis pregnancies 
with real choices that are life-affirming for 
both the mother and the child. 

We are the ones who have survived this 
reign of destruction and the ones who can 
make the change necessary so that all hu- 
man rights are respected, regardless of age, 
sex, race, religion, or state of development.

Boston band goes 'Extreme' 
with its new three-sided story 

By Micah Reitan 


A little over a year ago I hung out with the 
Boston Based band Extreme. At the time 
their ballad, "More Than Words," was No. 
1 . But they were more interested in talking 
to me about the songs they were writing for 
what would be their third album, than their 
new success. 

Extreme's latest, TH Sides To Every 
Story: Yours, Mine.and the Truth ," (clever 
isn't it), is now out The 14-song, 80- 
minute disc has everything. After listening 
to the musical marathon I understand why 
they were so excited to chat about them. 

"Ill Sides..." is divided into three sides. 
The first side (which is Your Side) is the 
heavier stuff, the second side (My Side) is 
more pop and ballad oriented, while the 
third side (the Truth) is a 20-minute long, 
epic-type song, that's broken down into 
three songs connected by an orchestra. 

Like I said, this disc has everything. But 
you shouldn't expect anything less from 
today's most versatile band. Their unique, 
four-part harmonies, added with guitarist 
Nuno Bettencourt's very clean, sharp, emo- 
tional and quick guitar sweeping, and the 
addition of a hom section and orchestra 
makes this album the most unique and 
versatile LP to come out since the Beatles, 
"Sgt. Pepper" record. 
REASON TO BUY: The variety, origi- 
nality, and talent will surprise you. "War- 
•heads," v Rest In Peace" (the frwrslrrgic): 

my favorite "Peacemaker Die" (which 
sampled in a part of Martin Luther King's "I 
Have a Dream" speech), "Seven Sundays," 
"Our Father" (a tune about fathers abandon- 
ing their families), "Color Me Blind," "Stop 
the World," and "Who Cares?" are great! 
Every style of music, attitude and emotion is 
played out. Pick this disc up. It kicks. 
REASON TO CRY: For those who love 
Extreme's heavier stuff, I'm sorry to inform 
you that Bettencourt doesn't showcase his 
trademark guitar artificial harmonics (high 
pitched guitar screechin' sounds) or his so- 
los that are dominated by quick arpeggios 
that lead to quicker scales like he did on 
"Pornograffiti." This album doesn't groove 
well as the last one. It doesn't have any 
"More Than Words" type tunes. The variety 
is so "extreme" that you might turn your 
head away. 

THE FINAL WORDS: Great album. Ex- 
treme isn't just four hessions who bang 
heads. They're great musicians whocan'tbe 
categorized. They are extremely original. 
"Ill Sides..." will lose some fans, but it'll 
gain twice as many new ones. This disc 
lacks bad songs. Nuno Bettencourt leaves 
me speechless (nothing new). He's today's 
best guitarist and rock musician. 

This is a well-balanced, album-oriented 
disc. They didn't write three or four good 
songs and fill the rest with crap (like Guns 'n' 
Roses did). Give this disc a listen. Extreme 
is blazing a new musical path that will soon 
be followed by many others. Extreme is

Despite technical problems, Choir shines 

By Nicole Mueller 


The CLU choir group, led by new choir director Dr. Wyant Morton, succeeded, on 
Friday night, in entertaining its audience composed mainly of students despite 
unforseen technical problems. 

When the music for Craig Kuehne's "Losing My Pet Pigeon" was mistakenly mixed 
up, Kuehne's wit and the spontaneous humor of MCs Ace Vanwanseele and Debbie 
Hoskins stalled the audience with perfect ease. Consequently, when the same problem 
occurred with the music for Angie Reitan's and Denise Handrich's "Joy to the World," 
the "Two Blonde Babes" carried the audience through the extra time with their 
humorous reaction to it. 

MCs Vanwanseele and Hoskins produced a variety of skits and dialogue that kept the 
audience in stitches between each number, including take-offs from "Married with 
Children," "Star Search," "Wayne's World," and "Dennis Leary" from MTV. 

The show included a variety of numbers, from Denise Handrich's romantic "Killing 
Me Softly" to Craig Kuehne's hilarious "Losing My Pet Pigeon." Sean Kelley, Steve 
Dempsey, and John Marsteen got the audience clapping with their rendition of Kenny 
Roger's "The Gambler", while Dempsey, Shawn Ives and James Solomon brought a 
tear to every girl's eye with "You Are My Everything." 

Other numbers included "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" by Reitan, "Honey 
Bun" by Michelle Mauriello and Rick Anderson, Will Shattuck's original "Someday, 
Somewhere, Sometime," "In My Life" by Amy Rinehart and "Joy to the World" by 
"The Two Blonde Babes." 

Sandy Aldana creatively entertained the audience with an oral interpretation of 
"Water Faucet Vision" by Gish Gin, and the Kingsmen Quartet, as always, kept the 
crowd cheering. 

Choir Variety Show ends on upbeat note 

By Micah Reitan 


"All's well that ends well," for the 1992-93 CLU Choir's Variety Show. The group 
bounced back from Friday night's "technical problems" to perform an entertaining, 
talent-packed show in the Preus-Brandt Forum Saturday night. 

"I was a little down after the first night," Steven Foster, a member of the Kingsman's 

Quartet said. "But I came back the second night with a positive attitude, which was 

to have fun." 
Choir President Angie Reitan added that, "Although the performances went well 

both nights, the technical difficulties of the first night damped our feeling of successs. 
But wearen'tprofessionals.and the Friday nightaudience understood that. They were 
very patient and undertanding. We went into the second night hoping there wouldn't 
be any techincal difficulties, and there weren't It went a lot smoother." 
Whatever went wrong Friday night was completely cleared, and cleaned up the next 
night. Saturday's 90-minute version did go extremely smooth. Co-MCs Ace Van 
Wanseele and Debbie Hoskins kept the crowd entertained and attentive with their 
easy going, light hearted-humor. 

"We changed some things the second night to make it flow better," Hoskins said. 
"We took a few things out and put a few things in. The audience responded really 

Their humor was just right for their audience. The variety of skits was nice to see, 
and their ability to capture and hold an audience's attention was outstanding. My only 
question is: "Where were those two during the Freshman variety show?" 

"It was our first time we've done anything like that. We received a lot of positive 
feedback, which was nice. But we're just glad we got a chance to help out the choir. 
A lot of work went into it. But it was all worth it." Van Wanseele said. 

But now we must go on with the show. The first act showcased the always 
consistantly well trained Kingsman Quartet. They performed "Do Right," and the 
talented choir went on a roll from that point. 

"I thought the Quartet did quite well. We didn't feel any pressure to perform well. 
Our goal the second night was to just have a good time and "do right," Quartet member 
Shawn Kelly said. 

After the Quartet did right, nobody did wrong. There were no "icch" problems. 
There were no missed signals or wrong notes. "All's well that ends well" for ihe Choir. 

Michael W. Smith's new CD 
will 'Change Your World* 

By Micah Reitan 


I couldn't wait to hearMichael W. Smith's 
new album, "Change Your World." I ran 
into my room, popped in the disc, hit play 
and turned the volume "all the way up to... 
11!" I picked up my guitar and started 
playing along to the FM-inspired groovy 
dance guitar riff of the first track, "Picture 
Perfect." I didn't put my guitar down until 
all 1 1 tracks were done (though I enjoyed 
playing some songs more 
than others). 

"Love One Another" con- 
tinued "Picture Perfect's" 
mood. But by the third track, 
it was time to hear a Smith 
speciality- a ballad. "I Will 
Be Here For You," was 
simple, sweet, and to the 
point But that wasn't the 
only ballad. There's a heart 
warming duet with Amy Grant called, 
"Somewhere Somehow." A revised '90s 
version of what I consider Smith's most 
popular tune, "Friends" made the album: 
"Friends are friends forever/If the Lord's 
the Lord of them/And a friend will not say 
never/Cause the welcome will not end," is 
the chorus. It's aclassic contemporary slow 

song, but it isn ' t the best ballad on "Change." 
"Somebody Love Me," isn't only the best 
ballad on this disc, it's the best track. It'll 
touch you because this song finds the hole in 
your heart, and fills it. It'll continue to fill 
your heart as long as you push rewind. 
REASONTO BUY: The ballads areenough 
reason, but the upbeat, happy-go-lucky dance 
tracks, "Picture Perfect," and "Love One: 
Another," will wear out your rewind button.' 
REASON TO CRY: "Color Blind" and 
"Cross of Gold," don't do the album justice. 
The messages are good, but 
the lyricsarechildish. "OutoJ" 
this World," "Give it Away" 
and "I Wanna Tell the World' 
seem to just be mere. Lyri- 
cally they're flaky. The disc's- 
lyrics are watered down for 
air play, but not as bad as 
Amy Grant's latesL(as if they 
could be). 

half the disc is phenomenal. That doesn't 
happen very much these days, so don't feel 
you've been sold short. His 1988 album, "i 
2 (EYE)" still remains his strongest; musi- 
cally, lyrically, and spiritually. But there 
would be no shame in picking up his latest. 
You never know, it might just "Change 
Your World."

in 1987 that he plagiarized part of a law 
school paper in 1 965 . He copied five pages 
from a law review in a 15-page paper with- 
out citing the source while at Syracuse 
University Law School. While running as 
a Democratic presidential candidate in 1987, 
he also used quotations in speeches from 
former British Labor Party leader Neil 
Kinnock and the late Sen . Robert F. Kennedy 
without giving them credit. 

These are well-known cases that received 
much attention in the nation's media. But 
plagiarism also ex ists on a m uch quieter and 
anonymous level, from the student who 
copies verbatim out of research books and 
nas«es it on as his or her own work in 
freshman composition, to doctoral candi- 
dates who secretly use the services of re- 
search companies. 

"I see it as a very critical problem. It 
seems to me that the incidence of plagia- 
rism has increased in the past 10 years," 
said Kevin Brien, a professor of philosophy 
at Washington College in Chestertown, Md. 
"I see it as something that is eroding aca- 
demic institutions. Unless we work collec- 
tively to turn it around, we will continue to 
have problems." 

'... college students under- 
stand what plagiarism is ...' 

Sometimes students plagiarize out of des- 
peration because they are weak writers or 
because they didn't work on their assign- 
ments until the very end of the term. Other 
students say they do not know what plagia- 
rism is, an excuse that doesn't wash with 
most academicians. 

"I believe 95 percent of college students 
understand what plagiarism is; they receive 
information about it from high school on," 
said Barbara Hetrick, dean of academic 
affairs at Hood College in Frederick, Md. 
"In most instances, students may not have 
given themselves enough time to complete 
the assignment, or in some cases, they may 
have felt over their heads academically. So 

rather than talk with the faculty member, 
they stole someone's work to pass." 

The Higher Education Research Institute 
at the University of California - Los Ange- 
les, which does annual freshman student 
surveys, used to ask questions about cheat- 
ing, but does not any longer. Some schools 
told students not to fill out the section on 
cheating, so researchers stopped asking the 
questions, a spokeswoman said. 

An average of 300,000 students a year are 
surveyed at 600 institutions. In 1988, the 
last year the cheating section was included 
in the survey, 36.6 percent of the respon- 
dents said they cheated on a test in school, 
while 57.1 percent said they copied home- 
work from another student. If cheating on 
this level exists, it is fair to assume that 
similar rates of plagiarism will exist, school 
officials said. 

In fraternity and sorority houses, in dorm 
lounges, even in classified ads in youth- 
oriented newspapers and magazines, term 
papers are openly peddled. Papers written 
by other students, and/or research done by 
companies that specialize in providing term 
papers to students can be turned in to in- 
structors and passed off as the students' 
own work. 

Consider Rolling Stone. In the classified 
section, companies routinely advertise to 
sell papers and research. The cost can range 
from $7.50 a page for undergraduate - level 
papers to $50 a page for custom research at 
the master's and doctorate level. Accord- 
ing to the companies, research is done by 
staff researchers who have advanced de- 
grees or have been in business for many 

George Thomas Wilson, classified ad- 
vertising director for Rolling Stone, said 
"there are obvious ethical problems with 
such services. He said that students could 
use the papers just for research, "but obvi- 
ously that probably isn't the case. There is 
no control once it is in their hands. On the 
surface, we can't know what they're going 
to do with it but one can certainly surmise. 
Who's to say?" 

Hetrick, from Hood College, said instruc- 
tors get to know a student's work and turn- 
ing in a paper that is different in style and 
approach could signal a plagiarism attempt. 
"Professors get to know writing styles pretty 
well. I'm sure they become suspicious if 
something is going on," she said. 

Hood has an academic honor code that is 
run by students, and suspected plagiarism 
cases go to the Academic Judicial Council, 
which is made up of students and faculty 
members. If students are suspected of pla- 
giarizing, they are expected to turn them- 
selves into the council and present their 
case. They may flunk the paper, the course, 
or in extreme cases , be kicked out of school . 
"The system works at Hood. I think there 
is an awareness of plagiarism. If they don't 
know, they will ask," Hetrick said. "They 
are very conscious of it."

Just another case of the disappearing "Hero" 

By Mike GretchokofT 


For eight days in October of 1991 , a Sony 
studio located near Magic Mountain saw 
all of its cameras focused on a burning 
airline wreckage being drenched with thou- 
sands of gallons of artificial rain. 

This was just one of many complicated 
scenes to film from the new movie "Hero", 
a Columbia Pictures release starring Dus tin 
Hoffman, Geena Davis and Andy Garcia. 
Hoffman portrays Bernie LaPlante, a 

lowlife petty crimi- 
nal who, while driv- 
ing on a freeway in 
Chicago, meets up 

with a burning plane wreck and procedes to 
rescue its passengers and then disappear. 
One of the plane's passengers, TV 
newsperson Gale Gayley, played by Davis, 
becomes mesmerized by a handsome im- 
age of the unknown hero who saved her life. 

Destiny then sees to it that John Bubber 
(Garcia) is propelled into stardom by com- 
ing across a shoe left by LaPlante at the 
scene of the disaster that matches the one 
left earlier at the wreckage. 

The idea for the movie came from the 
film's producer Laura Zisken ("Pretty 
Woman," "What About Bob?"). 

Zisken, after recalling an actual plane 
crash where a man had rescued some pas- 
sengers and then drowned leaving his iden- 

tity unknown, later pondered the idea of a 
fictitious rescuer disappearing, leaving the 
public to create its own hero. Enter Bubber, 
a fabricated hero who lacks any qualities 
worth admiration anyway. 

The concept for "Hero" was first pre- 
sented to Touchstone Pictures, and then to 
Columbia where director Stephen Frears 

Frears and Zisken then brought in writer 
David Webb Peoples, and the three got 
down to the business of writing the script 
and casting its characters. Although Billy 
Crystal was first considered for the part of 
LaPlante and Kevin Costner for Bubber, 
Hoffman and Garcia eventually filled the 


Although the picture boasts a strong cast, 
the $42 million production was anything 
but smooth. 

Sony backed out on its monetary commit- 
ment, causing some trouble. The problems 
increased when Frears suffered a mild heart 
attack, causing a delay in production. Fi- 
nally, things went from bad to worse, as the 
production process began with no rehearsal 
time for the actors because Hoffman and 
Davis were already tied up with the filming 
of "Hook" and "A League of Their Own,'' 

The perfect ending to the tale of a "Hero"? 
Hoffman was reported as being as difficult 
as ever to work with. 

'Peaks' doesn't catch f Ire, TV fans dissappointed 

Lynch has decided to neglect more than half of the chraracters from the TV show, including Sheriff Harry S. Truman 

College Press Service 

First things first: I was a "Twin Peaks" 
geek. When David Lynch's eerily odd brain- 
child was a weekly TV series, I went out of 
my way to watch it. I needed the show like 
a junkie needs a fix . I never stayed at a party 
past 9:30 p.m. Saturday nights because 10 
p.m. was "Twin Peaks" time. 

When the show was unjustly cancelled 
nearly two years ago, there was rumors 
Lynch was planning on a movie version of 
"Twin Peaks." Once those rumors were 

confirmed, I started counting the days until 
the movie was out 

Now that I've seen "Twin Peaks: Fire 
Walk With Me,: I wish Lynch would have 
let his sleeping creation lie. 
Lynch, who has also directed such quirky 
fare as "Blue Velvet" and "Wild at Heart," 
is intent on being more violent and sexual 
on the big screen than he was With his TV 
series. While he succeeds on this count, the 
sheer amount of violence an sex overwhelms 
Lynch's strength as a director - creating 
offbeat characters and telling stories through 

their eyes. The film documents the last 
seven days in the doomed life of high school 
siren Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). 

Palmer's character is examined in great 
detail, especially her attempt to escape her 
evil fate through cocaine alcohol. 

Ultimately, it is Lynch's preoccupation 
with the character of Laura that submarines 
"Fire Walk With Me." While the main plot 
gimmick of the TV show was solving the 
death of Laura Palmer, the enduring part of 
the show was the town folk of Twin Peaks. 
Sadly, Lynch has decided to neglect more 

than half of the characters from the TV 
show, including Sheriff Harry S. Truman, 
deputies Andy and Hawk, Lucy the secre- 
tary and the odd couple of Ed and Nadine. 
Even the characters that have survived 
the transition from small to big screen, like 
Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle 
Mac Lac hi an) and the Log Lady (Catherine 
E. Coulson), get the shaft from Lynch and 
fellow writer Robert Engels. Poor hostess] 
Norma (Peggy Lipton) is on screen for all 
of 10 second.

"Fire Walk With Me" is not without bright 

spots. Lynch remains a director with a 

knack for creating uncanny visual effects 

and causing moviegoers to feel genuinely 


But the bottom line is this: "Twin Peaks" 
fans aren't going to be satisfied with "Fire 
Walk With Me." People unfamiliar with the 
TV series are not likely to care very much for 
this muddled, overly long film. 

As a disappointed Twin Peaks geek, I'll go 
back to my VCR and watch some old epi- 
sodes whi le dreaming of the movie that m ight 
have been.

Have you ever thought of how you as an individual 
could help the homeless situation? Well now, you have 
that opportunity with Cal Lutheran's chapter of Habitat for 
Humanity. Habit is an international organization started by 
Millard Fuller in 1976 who believed everyone should have 
a decent house to live in. Habitat has volunteers build houses 
for needy people who cannot afford a house to live in. The 
people who are getting the house must help build the house 
and other projects and also pay for the house with no interest 
over a period of time. The high quality of houses that Habitat 
builds could be seen when Hurricane Andrew whipped 
through Dade County, Florida. Habitat built 27 houses there, 
all of which withstood the hurricane while nearby houses 
were demolished. For information regarding Habitat for

Regal volleyball team 
going in right direction 

By Gretchen Gies 


Laura Rtegner-Cowle/Ectio 

Tim Ward, shown above, is leading the Kingsmen in scoring through six games. 

The popular slogan "New and Improved" 
has become very cliche the past few years. 
I hate to label something with these two sly 
words, but I lack a better description of 
Regals' volleyball program. 

It's blantantly apparent that someone has 
reconstucted the bumping, setting, and 
spiking women. Head coach Beth Welch is 
that fine mechanic maneuvering her tools 
of experience within the Regal program. 

A win- loss record can hardly describe the 
progress three returners have made along 
with nine young faces. In fact, the Regals 
only maintain a 5--11 record. Merely an 
average showing on black and white. 

You must excuse me first I liken the 
Regal situation to a newly rebuilt engine 
which has just been started. 

Welch has gathered all the parts through 
recruiting. Aimee Snider, Darcy White, and 
Tara Thomas are three developed talents 
positioned according to their supportive 

function. Welch pieces these individuals 
together into a functioning group of three 

It's been demonstrated that these women 
can play, communicate, and work together 
to win. However, fans have watched the 
Regal team play, go down hill and then 
diminish to a sickening lossed set. 

Yet it's understandable why the pieced 
machine "falls apart". If one integral part 
malfunctions the whole engine is thrown 
out of whack. 

On the court, the Regals have to work 
together and function as a unit. (This advice 
is even cliche!) 

Oh my, now don't read me wrong. I am 
not criticizing but rather praising the "New 
and Improved Regals." 

Significant gains have been made and 
results have been reeped. It's evident that 
more than roommates and parents are at- 
tending the games to see for themselves the 
new Regal look and Welch era. 
It's very simple. The Regal machine needs 
to fine tune the talent and gather experience 
working together.

Regals, Kingsmen refurbish locker rooms 

By Gretchen Gies 


S ignificam improvements have been made 
to the Regal and Kingsmen locker rooms in 
the last six months. In both cases, the re- 
decorating and refurbishing was initiated 
by respective coaching staffs. 

This spring, Carla Dupuis, CLU's assis- 
tant director of athletics, and Regal coaches 
Kecia Davis, Ten Rupe and Beth Welch 
decided the small women's locker room 
needed a new look. 

Dupuis described the locker rooms as 
small and said that in the past, the locker 
rooms were not being used much. 

"It's such a small space so it needs to be 
fresh, clean and have school spirit," Dupuis 

The finished project was a team effort. 
Dupuis supplied her personal time and la- 
bor in helping in the painting process. The 
football program donated 30 used full-size 
lockers, which replaced the previous shabby, 
half-sized, thinner lockers. Gordon 
Randolph, director of facilities and Dan

Squires took the initiative and organized 
an attack team to start the summer project. 

Facilities repainted the tan room to white 
and Squires spiced up the bright room with 
purple and gold stripes. All 68 lockers were 
cleaned and painted. Then, a private con- 
tractor recarpeted the area in charcoal blue. 

Squires solicited funds through the coach- 
ing staff and alumni football players. Foot- 
ball contributors include Tom Bonds, Steve 
Hagen, Jowel Wilker, and Joe Monarrez. 

The deal roughly totaled $2,500. 
Kingsmen football co-captain Tom 
Pellegrino recognizes the significant im- 
provement "This project is a positive out- 
look for football," he said. "With these nice 
facilities, there is a better attitude." 

Rupert Sapwell, a junior on the Kingsmen 
basketball team, said the change "enhances 
team unity."

Campus expansion 
remains speculative 

$66 million proposal discussed with city 

By Charlie Flora 


Beginning the preliminary processes nec- 
essary lo expand its campus, Cal Lutheran 
announced a $66 million proposal for the 
development of the north campus, and re- 
development and renovation of the south 
campus at the city of Thousand Oaks' Gen- 
eral Plan Review Forum Sept. 24. 

The timetable for the long-term project, 
ho wever, remains uncertain as city approval , 
financing and planning must come together 
before construction can begin. Even on 
campus, the expansion schedule depends 
on whom you talk to. 

The athletic director would like to see the 
athletic complex, part of Phase I, built in the 
next two to three years. The vice president 
for adminstration figures it might take eight 
years to complete the first phase. But the 
new president of the university doesn't want 
to wait that long. 

"I hope not," President Luther Luedtke 
said of the projected schedule. "I'm not that 

However, with environmental impact re-

Milius named ASCLU Pep Athletics Commissioner 

By Amy Dale 


Senior Michelle Milius was elected the 
new ASCLU Senate's Pep Athletics Com- 
missioner. Milius won with a 54.2 percentof 
the vote ending the three-way race. Marcie 
Hegebush received 30.6 percent of the vote 
and Angela Chant received 15.15 percent. 

Two of the candidates presented speeches 
Sept. 28 in the Student Union Building. 
While Chant was not present to give a speech, 
both Hegebush and Milius were very enthu- 
siastic about giving theirs. 

Hegebush, a sophomore, stated that a pep 
athletics commissioner should be a person 
able to motivate their school. Hegebush is 
currently a CLU cheerleader and is used to 
motivating people. She feels being a good 
communicator is essential. 

Hegebush brought a visual aid to her 
speech. Into an empty glass she poured what 
she considers to be the vital ingredients of a 

pep commissioner. Her ingredients were 
soda pop to add "bubbly," a dash of cinna- 
mon for "spice," some "energy" drink, a 
handful of 
Wheaties to 
represent a 
and a packet of 
sugar to add 
"sweet." She 
then held her 
glass in the air 
and, before 
drinking it, she 
said. "Cheers! Michelle Milius 

Show your school spirit and vote for Marcie 
Hegebush for Pep Athletics Commis- 

Milius represented CLU last year as the 
school's mascot. She explained that she is 
working at getting a new school mascot for 
CLU. She is hoping for a mascot that will be 

more attractive to students. 

Milius has attended Student Senate meet- 
ings this year and enjoys getting involved 
and meeting people. She is very enthusias- 
tic about motivating students to attend sport- 
ing events. 

She said that one way she lets students 
know about events is to stand up in the 
cafeteria and announce the dates and times 
of CLU sporting events. 

Above all, Milius stressed the impor- 
tance of voting. She feels that no matter 
who the students vote for, they must vote. 
By doing this, they are showing involve- 
ment in their school, she said. 

Both Hegebush and Milius agree that a 
fun way to promote sporting events is to 
support the athletes themselves. Decorat- 
ing their lockers with balloons and signs or 
getting them donuts and candy bars were 
among their ideas. Posting fliers around 
campus listing various events was also men- 
tioned as way of keeping students informed. 

As for women's sports, Hegebush stated 
that she would promote them as strongly 
and in the same manner as men's sports. 
Milius suggested that a "girls night out" be 
organized in which students could go out to 
dinner and then, for instance, attend a 
women's volleyball or soccer game.

and 3,000 graduate students at CLU this 
year, about 300 are freshmen and about 
200 are new transfer students. 

The president's report also stated that 
GPA and SAT scores are higher this year 
than any other incoming class to date. In 
addition, the number of students continu- 
ing on from their freshman year is up from 
59.1 percent to 80 percent. 
According to Luedtke, there was an over- 
projection of scholarship funds last year. 
Due to the crunch of the current recession, 
scholarship money will be down this com- 
ing year, although the university will try to 
help those in need.

CLU President Luther Luedtke Sept. 29 
reassigned Dennis Gillette from the posi-

Other changes include the reassignment 
of Skip Duhlstine from controller to di-

Clinton aide speaks on policies concerning women 

By Heidi Bateman 


Economics and choices concerning women 
were two of the issues addressed by Nanci 
Rossov, a representative for the Bill CI in ton- 
Al Gore Democratic presidential ticket, at 
the Women's Resource Center Brown Bag 
luncheon Sept. 29. 

The Clinton-Gore plan, as outlined by 
Rosso, will protect women's rights in the 
workplace as well as in the economy. Rossov 
believes President Bush and Vice President 

Dan Quayle are "using scare tactics to say a 
woman's place is in the home." 

Clinton recognizes women's changing 
roles in society, Rossov told the group. 
Their plan calls for ensuring all workers are 
paid equally and fairly, and discrimination 
in federal hiring, promotions and contracts 
based on race, gender or sexual preference 
will be banned. Clinton also calls for strict 
enforcement of sexual harassment standards 
in government agencies, Rossov said. 

Clinton and Gore will help American 
women economically by being direct 

sources for women's health care and family 
services. Since 1980, health care costs have 
tripled. The average American spends 30 
percent of his or her income on health care 
alone, she said. 

"Health care costs here are too high," said 
Rossov. The Clinton-Gore plan claims that 
no one should be denied health care. Their 
plan would not only guarantee universal 
health coverage, but also include promises 
for creation of a comprehensive child care 
network and the enactment of the Fam-

• IS single-family homes to be constructed 
south of the Gibello Softball Field. 

Other proposals for the south campus 
include making the main entrance to cam- 
pus off Olsen Road by closing down Me- 
morial Parkway. The reason, according to 
Director of Facilities Gordon Randolph is 
to have no more "vehicular traffic right in 
the middle of campus." 

The first phase of the Specific Plan, due 
to be completed at the turn of the century, 
is the construction of the physical educa- 
tion and creative arts complexes, the edu- 
cational technology building as well as the 
infrastructure development The develop- 
ment includes constructing the new North 
Campus Drive, creating sewer drains.curbs, 
street lights and all the utilities involved — 
which needs to be done prior to construc- 

The first phase, according to CLU Presi- 
dent Luther Luedlke, would also include 
the endowment of student scholarships and 

This phase alone will cost the school 
S 19.5 million, according to Dennis Gillette, 
CLU's vice president for administration. 

The physical education complex is the top 
priority of the first phase and would cost 
between $8 and $9 million, according to 
Robert Doering, CLU's director of athlet- 
ics. The complex includes an 1,800-seat 
basketball gymnasium, an Olympic-size 
swimming pool, tennis courts, a new 3,000- 
seat football field, a dance studio, physi- 
ological exercise lab, a fitness center, three 
practice fields and a new track. 

The campaign to build this complex was 
set forth in 1984 along with plans for build- 
ing the Ahmanson Science Center and 
Pearson Library. The science center and 
library were both built by the end of 1988, 
but the two projects went over budget, ac- 
cording to Doering.and there was not enough 
money left to build the physical education 

"We were deeply disappointed that people 
overspent — that the physical education 
complex didn't become a reality back in 
1984," Doering said. "So until we actually 
see the complex, we in the (athletic depart- 
ment) aren't going to get too excited." 

But ever since CLU went down in divi- 
sions in 1991 — going from its dual mem- 
bership in the National Association for 
Intercollegiate Athletics and NCAA Divi- 
sion II to the NCAA Division Ill's Southern 
California Intercollegiate Athletic Confer- 
ence — it had an obligation to fulfill the 
requirements of being a member of SCI AC. 

The requirement was for CLU to simply 

build a new physical education complex 
which would have to include — among other 
things — an Olympic-size swimming pool. 
"I think Chancellor (Jerry) Miller will do 
a fine job raising money for the complex," 
Doering added. 

But CLU still needs to give Thousand 
Oaks enough information to conduct an

ily and Medical Leave Act that would 
allow Americans to care for their newborn 
children and ill family members without 
the threat of losing their jobs. Clinton plans 
to "phase-in" such plans, which Rossov 
said shows Clinton's dedication to work- 
ing with big businesses. 

The Clinton platform also supports a 
woman's legal right to choose to have an 
abortion, Rossov said. Clinton has said he 
is pro-choice, not pro-abortion, she com- 

mented. Americans have to "stop pretend- 
ing that children and young people will stop 
having sex," Rossov explained. 

Before Roe vs. Wade, one to two million 
illegal abortion were performed each year. 
"Women die "Rossov said. More than 5,000 
deaths per year were reported on abortions 
were illegally performed, she said. 

Rossov explained that more than 600 bills 
to restrict abortion in this country have been 
submiued since 1989. One of the most re- 
cent, Planned Parenthood vs. Casey, in- 
cludes a 24 hour delay clause in Pennsylva- 
nia. According to Rossov, this bill is dis- 
turbing, as it suggest that women decide to 
have abortions on a whim. "To suggest that 

a politician can better decide a woman's 
choice is insulting." 

Clinton and Gore have promised to sign 
the Freedom of Choice act within the first 
1 00 day s in office and to create a system that 
allows for women to get counseling and 
education about family planning so that 
abortion does not have to be the solution, 
she said. "Clinton believes from the core 
about women's rights," said Rossov, who is 
a professional writer, director and active 
feminist dealing with women in the arts. 

According to Rossov, Clintton said, "The 
problem today is not the size of the chal- 
lenge, but the dimension of disbelief. You 
have to have thecourage to vote for change." 

As far as raising money the entire Spe- 
cific Plan, Luedtke said it would come from 
the Board of Regents, foundations and other 
organizations and corporations as well as 
from the efforts of Chancellor Miller. 

"The Regents have already made a com- 
mitment to help us with their financial re- 
sources," Luedtke said. 

Other aspects of the north campus devel- 
opment: The child care center, which is 
currently overlooking the baseball field, 
would be moved closer to Mounclef Boule- 
vard and the Facilities Department would 
be moved from its site next to Rasmussen 
Hall, to the baseline of the Mountclef Ridge. 
CLU faculty, staff, administrators and 
married students w i 1 1 be considered fust for 
housing in the residential complex on the 
north campus. The complex proposal 
shouldn't exceed 650 units despite a Thou- 
sand Oaks handout listing it at 750 units, 
according Gillette. 

The proposed 15 single-family houses to 
be built on the south campus would be 
targeted for CLU faculty families and staff 
as well as interim professors. 

At the plan review forum, the CLU plan 
was the 24th item out of the 28 on the 
agenda at the Goebel Senior Adult Center. 
The forum was an invitation to Thousand 
Oaks residents to voice concern — support 
or dislike — toward all construction plans 
for the city. 

The item wasn't brought up until the end 
of the meeting, almost 1 1 p.m. But many 
people were still in attendance and had 
something to say to CLU's plans. 

A resident said he would like to see the

LASO helps cultural awareness 

By Alfonzo Gonzalez 


One of the many longstanding clubs at 
CLU is the Latin American Student Orga- 
nization, whose president this year is jun- 
ior Alberto Rios. 

LASO is not just a club for Hispanic 
students but is also an inclusive club that 
encourages everyone to participate. LASO 
has been a club for seven years and has 
always tried to involve as many members 
as possible. The message is to bring aware- 
ness to Latino culture. 

"We would like to grow as an organiza- 
tion that is well represented in the school 
and outside the community," Rios said. 
"The reason is so we can provide services 
to the students - to make them more aware 
of Latino culture." 

Some of LASO's past accomplishments 
have been the development of a folkloric 
dance group. The group was associated 

Jason Sarrafian/Echo 

Alberto Rios, president of Latin Ameri- 
can Student Organization 

with a Mexican cultural dance filled with 
music and a plethora of colorful clothing 
aimed at increasing Latino students enroll- 
ing at CLU. 

LASO has participated in two fund-rais- 
ers already this year. The first one was in 

the Santa Monica Mountains Cultural En- 
counter. The event showcased a variety of 
cultures. The second fundraiser was a 
carwash on Sept. 25 in the Mountclef 
parking loL A $5 donation was requested 
for each wash. 

So far these these two fund-raisers have 
brought a substantial amount of revenue 
to the club. But the money isn't primarily 
what this club is about. 

"It's really not the money that's impor- 
tant, but the services that we provide," 
Rios said. 

LASO plans to have a few more events 
and programs scheduled in the near fu- 
ture. Rios hopes to produce a youth sum- 
mit in which LASO will provide a day full 
of workshops that will help build self- 
esteem for troubled youths. 

On Oct 24, LASO will teaming up with 
the African American Student Associa- 
tion to sponsor a costume dance during 

Campus Ministries open to all 

By Elaine C. Borgonia 


For most of the general public, the first 
encounter with religion happens in the 
home. Spiritual nourishment continues on 
campus through the group called Campus 

One of the group's scheduled school func- 
tions is the Worship Celebration in the 
Samuelson Chapel every Sunday at 10:30 
a.m. The service offers the opportunity to 
have Communion and is an open invitation 
to all students. 

Another function is the Morning Chapel 
Service at 10 a.m. on Wednesdays. Guest 
speakers share their religious beliefs with 
the congregation. At the end of the service, 
refreshments are served to get people to 
mingle and enjoy themselves. 

The backbone of the Campus Ministry is 
an elected body of officials called the 
Church Council. Kjersti Berg, the chair- 
person, says that within the council "there 
are committees that are responsible for 

different tasks." 

For example, the Campus Network Com- 
mittee handles the publicity. This com mi tee 
puts out flyers, posters and tabletop ads in 
the cafeteria. 

While the publicity team is busy updating 
faculty and students, another committee 
gears into action. Headed by Kristen 
Lemmon, the Global Peace and Justice Com- 
mittee initiates "outreach" programs. 

Among the many activities is one that 
invites the whole CLU population to go into 
the heart of Los Angeles and experience 
first hand the other side of urban living. 

Another committee allows students to get 
involved with the "Meals on Wheels" pro- 
gram that provides meals for homeless. 

Other projects include visiting the eld- 
erly, supporting volunteer services through 
collection. Habitat for Humanity, and more. 

The spiritual aspect has not been forgot- 
ten. Enrichment of the soul comes in a 
number of opportunities. Sponsored by the 
Christian Education Committee, Bible study 
allows the individual to know more about 

his or her faith by rediscovering the Bible. 

One can also rediscover or celebrate his 
or her religious convictions through the 
Performing Arts. Chapel Choir, for in- 
stance, sing at Sunday Worship services 
(rehearsals are on Thursdays at 6 p.m. in 
the Chapel). 

Derek Helton accompanies the Choir on 
Sundays. He says that music "unifies the 
people and so in our Sunday services we 
come together as one whole body." 

Also on Thursdays, students gather in 
the Chapel lounge at 9 p.m. to sing songs 
and to share their souls with one another. 

There is also a Liturgical Dance Group 
that prepares sacred dances for worship 
services. Those who are interested should 
cantact Sandra Dager in the Campus Min- 
istry Office, Ext. 3229. 
To put these programs into effect, the 
monetary value of each should be taken 
into consideration. Despite the fact that 
Campus Ministry does not hold fund rais- 
ers, they do have a set budget provided by 
the school. 

Final homecoming vote on Wednesday 

The nominations for this year's Home- 
coming court were voted on Sept 30 and

CLU language department 
introduces Russian course 

By James Kalakay 


When you think of language courses at 
CLU, you most likely think of Spanish, 
French of German. But now, professor 
Amanda Nowakowski would like students 
to think of an alternative — Russian. 

This semester marks the introduction of 
Russian to the language department at CLU. 
Nowakowski is the professor who is work- 
ing to show CLU students that learning 
Russian can be challenging and rewarding. 

Nowakowski comes to CLU from Ten- 
nessee, where she attended the University 
of Tennessee as a German/Russian major. 
She then went on to get her master's degree 
at UCLA where she is currently working on 
her doctorate in Russian literature. In addi- 
tion, the 28-year-old studied on two differ- 
ent occasions at Leningrad State University 
in Leningrad (now Sl Petersberg). 
When asked how she became interested in 
the Russian language, Nowakowski said 
that she has always been fascinated with the 
country's culture. 

"When I was a little girl, my parents were 
physicists who used to go to the Soviet 
Union, and they would bring me back Rus- 
sian toys and books and I just found it so 

Nowakowski finds great beauty in the 

Russian or Syric alphabet, and also in Rus- 
sian literature, which she says is very impor- 
tant to the Russian people. 

"You find that the Russians develop a love 
for poetry at a very early age. In fact, many 
young children can recite works by Pushkin 
(a famous Russian author) by heart" 

Nowakowski says that the reason CLU 
decided to take on Russian as a language 
course is due to the "great demand" to leam 
the language because of recent events in that 
part of the world. She says this 
demand is shown in the interest that has 
already been shown in the program. 

"I have ten students in my class, and three 
of them will be going to study in Russian in 
the near future," she concluded. 

When asked if she thinks that Russian will 
catch on in schools as much as Spanish, 
French and German have, Nowakowski re- 
mains doubtful, and she attributes this feel- 
ing to the difficulties involved in learning 

However, Nowakowski does feel that 
"When you learn a language, and how a 
people express themselves through that lan- 
guage, you begin to appreciate and under- 
stand their culture better." 

In addition to Elementary Russian I, which 
was introduced this summer, CLU is plan- 
ning to add Elementary Russian II to the 
curriculum in the spring.

Student volunteers reach 
out to local community 

By Amy Waiz 


California Lutheran University both 
gives and takes from the surrounding 
community of Thousand Oaks. Oneway 
the university enhances their giving is 
through the Volunteer Center, located 
beside the cafeteria. Opening day was 
last Thursday, Oct 1. Students were 
invited to sign up for various service 
projects throughout the area. Last year, 
over 65 students and faculty were in- 
volved with groups such as Habitat for 
Humanity and The Oaks Health Care 
Center. Sophmore Mercedes Ruiz com- 
mented on working with the elderly, and 
children: "You feel as if you've accom- 
plished something." 
One of the most popular volunteer items 
involved passing out food with the Conejo 
Valley Winter Shelter, and Holy Trinity 
Church. Upcoming opportunities to vol- 
unteer include community groups such as 
Zoe Christian Center, Thousand Oaks 
Residential Care Home, Interface (help- 
ing abused children). Brail ie Institute (with 
Gobel Senior Center), and rehabilitation 
work at the Y.M.C. A., for Cerebal Palsey. 

Senior Jake Zimmerman enjoyed volun- 
teering last year, as a best friend for a 
handicapped person. A local fair hosted 
the friends, and volunteers for the day. 
"It was great!" said Jake. 

The Volunteer Center has been open 
since the Spring of 1992, when a group 
of students decided it would be a benefi- 
cial addition, since most larger colleges 
had a center already. The office has two 
coordinators: Melissa Hanson and 
Allison Pilmer, who have been with the 
program from the start. The head direc- 
tor, Sally Schillaci, recently gave birth to 
a 7 lb., 4 ounce girl, Katelin Schillaci, on 
Friday Sept. 25. 

Temporarily taking over her position 
for the semester, is Melanie Hades, who 
hopes to continue the exposure and pub- 
licity of the program. Melanie states, 
"We would like to involve as many stu- 
dents as possible, and make it a part of 
their lives." To make the commitment to 
volunteer, stop by the Volunteer Center 
between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday 
through Thursday. Volunteering is an 
excellent way to gain job experience and 
enrich the lives of others, as well as

Notes from a man living 
in a CLU hole-New West 

Lance T. Young 
Opinion Editor 

At last year's housing lottery I was pleased 
to see that I had been assigned to North Hall 
for the 1992-93 school year. I thought it 
would be a great improvement over Thomp- 
son Hall and I was looking forward to 
moving to the west side of campus. Upon 
arrival on the last day of August after a 
demon hot drive through the desert, I was 
not so pleased to find that I was going to 
spend my entire semester living in a de- 
crepit hole. 

The baseboard in the corner of our room 
was rotted out and as a result there were an 
infinite amount of ants traveling through 
our front room on there way to locating and 
destroying our food supply. The carpet was 
coming apart and there were a great number 
of holes in the walls and ceilings. The desks 
were in a tragic state of neglect and disre- 
pair and there was what appeared to be 
blood on the floor of our bathroom. 

"Welcome to New West!" a banner an- 
nounced. "Jesus," I thought. 
The last thing a guy needs is to spend 21 
hours on the road, come in sweaty from the 
heat, wired from caffeine and delirious 
from lack of sleep to find out he is living in 
a pit. In addition to that I was expected to 
sign a room inventory sheet that I would be 
held accountable for at the end of the year. 
One RA wanted my signature before I had 
even looked at my room. 

After sizing up our living quarters my 
roommate and I decided that one small 
sheet of paper was not enough to list all the 
problems in our room. We spent two hours 
examining our our new home and filled up 
two sheets of paper listing everything that 
was inadequate or broken. I wanted to 
make sure that at the end of the year I didn 't 
gel stuck for any of the damages that our 
place of residence had acquired over the 
last several years. The last two years I have 
acquired certain "phantom fines" for dam- 
ages in my rooms that were either already 
in existence or were not there when I left for 
summer break. 

It seems that this school does much of its 
redecorating at the expense of unwitting 
students. Don't expect to get your $100 
dollar dorm fine deposit back - ever. Even 
if you live conservatively, the school may 
slick you with a mysterious fine and use 
your money to buy new coffee cups for the 
Facilities Department or a pair of skis for 
Residence Life. The money from the dorm 

damage deposits should at least cover the 
ordinary wear and tear associated with mere 
existing. Hell, I'm almost scared to breath in 
my room lest the carbon dioxide that es- 
capes my mouth should somehow lead to 
the buildup of certain chemicals or elements 
(unknown to me) on the window blinds or 
bathroom mirror. 

I don't expect the dorms to be as elegant as 
suites in the Hilton Inn, that wouldn't be 
realistic and if nothing else I am a realist, 
but I would like them to be clean and decent 
- I might even like to feel like I'm not in 
danger of catching a wicked disease while 
living there (but I can't ask for too much 
distance from the ample amount of money 
I'm spending for my room and board at 
CLU). I'd be embarrassed to rent out a room 
like ours to a prospective buyer. 

After sizing up our living quar- 
ters, my roommate and I de- 
cided that one small sheet of 
paper was not enough to list 
all the problems in our room. 

There are no back doors. Our air-condi- 
tioner doesn't work. Our toilet overflows, 
etc., etc. While I'm at it, I'd like to mention 
a campus flier that I received in the mail a 
few weeks ago. It stated something to the 
effect that "Marriot was proud to announce 
the installment of a great new opportunity 
for the students to spend $35 to get their 
rooms cleaned once a month. (Of course, if 
you want to pay more, you can get your 
room cleaned as many damn times as you 
like -- that is the American way). The flier 
gloriously announced that the cleaning 
would even include the windows, a dusting, 
and vacuuming! Christ! How grand! This 
school doesn'tcutany comers when itcomes 
to the comfort of its students. Unless the 
comfort of its students conflicts with the 
schools plans to make a profit. 

When my parents were at the University 
of Illinois ( a school that even in the 1960s 
was about 10 times as big as CLU) they got 
their rooms cleaned weekly at no charge. 
Maybe if they left a wintergTeen minion my 
pillow I'd sign up, but as it is I need to save 
my money just to buy toilet paper. 

All I know for sure is that the Student 
Senate made ihe correct and proper choice 
when they decided to buy the new lighted 
campus maps (a steal at only $3,500) in- 
stead of allocating the money lo complete 
the redecorating of Mt. Clef (400 side) or 
the west side of campus. Now at least I know 
where the dump I live in is, in relation to the 
rest of the campus. 

Jay Ashkinos 
Echo Staff Writer 

I've heard that some of you campus-lifers 
have been bothered by solicitors lately. If 
this is a real thorn in your side (grouch), let 
me give you some good advice I stole from 
somebody that I know and you don'L 

First, have any of you tried lo put one of 
those convenient "NO SOLICITORS " slick- 
ers on your door. Well, if you don't, it's as 
good as having a "PLEASE, BY ALL 
BABY" stickers on your door. 

If that doesn't work, maybe you should 
ask "Who is it?" before you answer the door. 
Didn't your mother teach you anything? 

I mean, if you heard someone answer 
"Salesman" or "Jehovah's Witness" or 
"Landshark," then you could politely tell 
them you don 't want to buy any thing, change 
your religion or be eaten at the present time. 

But, if you fail the first two steps and 
answer the door for one of these peddlers, 
try this: 

"Hi. I was wondering if you'd like to 
purchase any of these fine colognes," says 
the arrogant wannabee Obsession commer- 
cial star. 

"Would you do me a favor?" you would 

Just tell pesky 
solicitors to 
leave campus 


"Sure," he would answer. 

"Will you please leave now, sir, and never 
knock on my door again?" you'd return. 

They will leave. Trust me. It's that simple. 
And they won't come back. 

Rude you say? 

Yes, it is rather rude, but how rude is it to 
disrupt your privacy by trying to push their 
product? Fight fire with fire. 

Speaking of privacy, isn't this a P-R-I- V- 
A-T-E school"? 

Aren 't there rules about this sort of thing? 
Of course there are. 

Bill Stott, CLU's director of Residence 
Life, says that "Unless its a student group, 
they need to come through Campus Activi- 
ties so we can check them out and alert staff 
and security." 

He went on to mention that this is the 
policy because some solicitors in the past 
have come onto the campus without proper 
clearance and misrepresented what they 
were selling (We're being taken advantage 
of? Well bless their hides to Hades!). 

Stoit also said that it seems that students 

are a lot less tolerant with these types than

Complaining doesn't help 

By Nicole Mueller 
Echo Staff Writer 

Whether it's politics, the weather, or burnt 
toast, everyone always seems to have some- 
thing to complain about These days, focus- 
ing on the negative has truly become habit 
in America. 

The media is partly to blame for this. 
Since when does the 10 o'clock news ever 
bother reminding the public that there is any 
good left in this world? Well, allow me to 
assure you that there is good left in this 
world. The following is a top 10 list of 
"reasons to smile" compiled by my room- 
mate Kendra and myself just recently: 

1. Good friends 

2. Fresh-cut roses 

3. Hot cocoa on a rainy day 

4. Rice Krispy Treats (Kendra's personal 


6. A rainbow 

7. Kenny Rogers (Nicole's personal fa- 

8. A bubble bath 

9. Popcorn at midnight 

10. Broncos beat the Raiders! 

The list could certainly be longer. Any- 
way, while these reasons may seem simple 
or trivial to you, just take them away and 
others like them and then see how you'd 
like it There are an abundant number of 
things to be grateful for and certainly enough 
reasons to SMILE! It has actually been 
proven that the simple act of smiling can lift 
one's mood itself. Besides, studies show 
that frowning can also cause wrinkles! 
Aren't those reasons enough to smile? 
The majority of the people I observe com- 

plaining are those who really do nothing 
more than just that: COMPLAIN. Besides, 
what is the point of complaining? One may 
say that it makes him/her feel better, but I 
have a difficult time believing that. How 
can wasting precious time complaining about 
something actually make someone feel 

It seems to me that focusing on it would 
usually reinforce it. Allow me to add that 
issues such as poverty, crime, and so on, do 
need to be discussed, but too often is com- 
plaining nothing more than complaining - 
and oh, so unproductive!" 

Too many people complain 
about politics, then don 7 vote. 
People complain all the time 
about boredom when there are 
people to meet, sports to try, 
and more seriously, battered 
children to console and the 
homeless to feed. 

And therein lies the sadness. For me, I 
become quite tired of listening to others 
complain about things that they really make 
no effort to change.

others and toward improving the very com-

Warrant's new sound is a disappointment 

By Micah Reitan 


"Wait! Play that again! Are you sure that 
was Warrant?" Ladies and gentleman. 
Boys and girls. Gather around and listen to 
the new "pedal to the metal," Warrant LP, 
"Dog Eat Dog." 

The Hollywood "Down Boys" went way 
down for this one. This is a huge surprise! 
I can't believe this is the same band that 
does "Heaven," "I Saw Red," "Cherry Pie," 
and "Uncle Tom's Cabin!" The disc starts 
out on fire with a "Right of the Bumble 
Bee," type guitar riff, better known as the 
song, "Machine Gun." This song is great. It 
has a really nasty attitude to it. The second 

tune, "The Hole In My Wall," rocks just as 
well. I'm so impressed! Could this be the 
best Warrant disc? 

No! It all falls from there. What hap- 
pened? What went wrong? I don't know. 
But I'll be the first (but surly not the last) to 
tell the next five tracks simply suck. The 
next two songs after those five, "All My 
Bridges Are Burning," and "Quicksand" 
are just average. But Warrant redeems 
themselves after seven weak tunes with a 
great ballad, "Let It Rain." 
This song is really sweet. It's the best song 
on the disc. And it's a safe bet that it'll 
eventually be over-played on MTV. But, at 
least it's a really cool song. But after "Let 
It Rain," it's back to crap. The song "Inside 

Out" is the worst Warrant song of all time. 
It thrashy and trashy. Headaches are guar- 
anteed. Hit fast-forward now. 

Finally, the last track! I thought it would 
never come. "Sad Tresera" is the title. It's 
a good song. When it comes to this album, 
it's great. But the fact remains, the only 
thing sadder than Tresera is this disc. 
REASON TO BUY: I met Warrant in the 
LAX airport. We were both catching the 
same flight to Tucson. I talked to them for 
a while, so I felt obligated to buy this disc. 
It was almost a personal thing to review 
this disc. So much for personal relation- 
ships. "Machine Gun," "Hole In My Wall," 
and "Let Rain," save this album from the 
immediate drop into the super-saver bend 

at local record shops. 

REASON TO CRY: I'm so disappointed. 
Lead singer, Jani Lane, who writes all their 
materia], should just go solo. He's the only 
thing holding this band together. The other 
four are obviously just good friends of his. 
They must be really good friends. 
THE FINAL WORDS: I really wanted to 
give this disc a positive review since I dug 
their first two albums and this disc's first two 
tracks kick. But no can do. This is the biggest 
disappointment since Whitesnake's/'Slip of 
the Tongue" disc. 

I still respect Jani Lane for his voice, song 
writing, and attempt to change styles. It's 
just that Warrant didn't need tochange. Why 
fix something that isn't broken?

Annual Point Mugu 
air show this month 

By Gerhard Jodwischat 


If you have ever wanted to see military 
and civilian planes, jets and helicopters up 
close and in action you won't want to miss 
the 30th annual air show at Point Mugu 
Naval Air Station Saturday and Sunday, 
October 10-11. 

Many of you may have been unaware 
that we have a Naval air facility right here 
in Ventura County. Point Mugu is the 
Navy's premier test and evaluation center 
for missiles and other typesof Naval weap- 
ons systems. 

Every year. Point Mugu has an open 
house/air show to entertain the public as 
well as inform them about the vital role the 
Navy plays in our national security. The 
base has been in operation since 1946. 

According to Deputy Public Affairs Of- 
ficer Bob Hubbert, this year's show will 
feature hanger and ground displays, mili- 
tary jets as well as civilian air performers. 
There will also be a skydiving exhibition 
by a Naval parachute team. In addition to 
the demonstrations and displays, there will 
be live musical entertainment all day long. 

The main attraction has traditionally been 
the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels jet fighter 
demonstration team. This year however, the 
team will not be performing because it is 
touring other air shows in Europe. Headlin- 
ing the event this year will be The Snow- 
birds, courtesy of the Canadian Air Force. 

When asked about the Snowbirds Hubbert 
said, "We are thrilled to have them here at 
Point Mugu. They put on a really exciting 

It is expected that 100,000 people will 
attend the show each day. It is recommened 
that you arrive early to get a good spot. The 
gates will open at 8 a.m. with flying begin- 
ning at 8:30 a.m. You can bring your own 
lunch or food, and drinks will be available at 
the base. Coolers will be allowed on base. 
You'll also want to bring a lawn chair to sit 

There will be 20,000 grandstand seats 
avaliable on a first-come basis. These seals 
cost $5 each. Otherwise parking for the 
show and all of the exhibits and displays are 
free. So there you have it. For a fun, excit- 
ing, low-budget day in the sun, this year's 
Point Mugu Air Show may just be the ticket.

Humor in Captain Ron will 
capture audience attention 

By Mike GretchokofT 


Martin Short and Thousand Oaks High 
School graduate Kurt Russell have 
teamed up in the fairy tale comedy "Cap- 
tain Ron," a movie that manages to 
make you laugh and keep you enter- 
tained despite its corny and predictable 

When Martin Harvey (played by Short) 
learns he just inherited his uncle's 
$250,000 boat, he races home to tell his 
beautiful wife the good news. Harvey 
and his wife agree that if they sell the 
boat they can pay off the second mort- 
gage on their house and their credit card 

However, there is problem. The boat 
is docked on a remote island in the 
Caribbean and they need someone to 
assist in sailing it home. 

Harvey sees the rare opportunity as a 
chance for his family to become closer, 
but has no idea what is to happen when 
Capt. Ron (Russell) shows up to pilot 
the family adventure. 

As he did in "The Three Fugitives" 
and "Pure Luck," Short plays the role of 
a clumsy fool with a big heart who 

spends most of his time stumbling into 

Russell is a little out of shape for the 
film, unlike his role in "Tango and Cash" 
where he had to look respectable, starring 
along side Sylvester Stallone. However, 
Capt. Ron is a shaggy-haired, beer-guz- 
zling freeloader and so Russell looks his 

If you're not impressed with Capt. Ron's 
ability to teach the game of Monopoly to 
revolutionary freedom fighters, surely the 
Harvey family's ability to outsmartagroup 
of bloodthirsty Cuban pirates will capture 
your attention. 

A strong point about the movie, in addi- 
tion to its humor, is the scenic coastal 
views of the Caribbean Islands including 
Saint Croix and Saint Thomas. Unfortu- 
nately, the scenery for the adventure in 
Cuba looks a lot like Universal Studios. 

The plot is silly and unrealistic and even 
Short and Russell can't make "Captain 
Ron" a great movie, but the Touchstone 
Pictures release is very funny and worth 

It's in the theatres now and odds are that 
if you see the movie you'll feel a strong 
desire to take a break from life and sail the 
Caribbean with a loved one.

Billy Crystal shines in new movie 

College Press Service 

Billy Crystal is hot, blistering hot. He 
rose to the top ranks of stand-up comedy, 
co-starred on the 1970s television classic, 
"Soap," became a household word during 
his one-year on "Saturday Night Live," 
where he created the characters of Fernando 
and Sammy. 

Then, film roles in "When Harry Met 
Sally..." and "City Slickers," among others 
solidified his stature as one of America's 
premier funnymen. As if that weren't 
enough, Crystal's yeoman's work hosting 
the most recent Oscar telecasts further in- 
creased his visibilty and popularity. 

The result? Virtual Hollywood carte 

So Crystal took over a favorite character. 
Buddy Young Jr., an aging comic who's 
lost his funny bone, and built a movie around 
him. To fully realize his vision, Crystal 
elected to co-write, produce, direct and star 
in "Mr. Saturday Night," his bittersweet 
film which explores the turbulent relation- 
ship between Buddy and his brother/man- 
ager Stan (David Paymer), as they survive 
the peaks and valleys of Buddy's career, 
which range from gigs at the Catskills clubs 
and a season on his own TV comedy show 
to following the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan 
Show and hostile performance at old folks 

"Buddy is so different and unusual. He's 
so funny , so monstrous, so angry, so scared. 
He's a big, wrinkled child. It's the greatest 
part I'll ever get to play," said Crystal 
during a recent press briefing. 

"Buddy is the most complete person I've 
ever played, the one with the most dimen- 
sion. He's RAGING JEW. That's what I 
set out to make. I wanted a really funny 
movie with an edge. 

"The movie to me isn't about show busi- 
ness, though it is the vidian at times. It's 
about a man's inability to be intimate and 
develop as a person. It's about someone 
who only sees life through a spotlight, then 
when the spotlight is off, he can't see 
anything. It's a man's inability to be a 
husband, a father and a brother. Then he 
starts to change." 

Creating Crystal's Willy Loman with 
laughs meant delving into comedy lore and 
incorporating names both famous and for- 
gotten. "I know a lot of them. They're 
amazing characters. They're really show 
business to me," says Crystal. 

"In the early days of television, a lot of 
the (networks) went to comics. For every 
Sid Caesar or Jackie Gleason, there was a 
Red Buttons or a Larry Storch or someone 
else who had one year in the sun. Back then 
seasons were 39 weeks. It was a year's 
work. It wasn't '12 with an option for six, 
and we'll test it in Guam.' There are mo- 

ments from a lot of people that I elaborated 
on an made it into the life of Buddy." 

As excited as he was to breathe life into 
Buddy, Crystal found directing his greatest 
challenge. "It was everything I expected it 
to be and more. I don't know how else to 
describe it, but I was actually sorry we 
stopped shooting. I've never felt that way 
on a film," says Crystal. 

"I realized I knew so much more than I 
thought I was going to. Every day became 
an exhilarating experience, which was ' How 
can I bring this scene to life?' I was able to 
solve problems that I thought 'Oh God, 
what if they ask me to do something I don't 
know?' Every day I really loved what I was 
doing. 'Mr. Saturday Night' is everything I 
wanted it to be. 

Next up for Crystal? "Nothing," he says, 
smiling. "I have no plans. It's the first time 
in my career I don't want to work. 'Mr. 
Saturday Night' has been 16 months of 
unbelievable concentration and effort and 
love. I've reached that point where it's time 
to just kick back and enjoy myself. 

All I want to do is watch my daughter's 
high school volleyball team throughout her 
whole season. I want to ride my horse. I 
want to rope some calves. I just want to sit 
back, take a deep breath and go, 'You did a 
good thing.'" 

Crystals movie is scheduled to run at 
Conejo theaters beginning Friday, Oct. 2.

Murray plays and coaches 

Vanessa Martin 


Scott Murray, the women's assistant soccer 
coach at California Lutheran University, con- 
tinually guides the women's team to achieve 
its goals. 
Hired less than two years ago, Murray took 
the job at CLU because he admired the 
coaching techniques of head coach George 

"I feel that we have the same goals and 
thoughts on the game of soccer," said Murray. 

Participating in soccer as a boy in the 
Winnetka Park Youth League, Murray went 
on to play one year at Glendale College and 
two years on varsity at Cal State-Northridge. 
He carried on his success playing for a semi- 
pro team, Kroat, and the professional Los 
Angeles Lazers. 

"I have to say, though, that my father (Ri- 
chard Murray) gave me the opportunity to 
play. He never pushed me too hard and 
supported me in whatever I did," said Murray. 

Beginning his career at CSUN coaching 
club teams was his next step. He began to 
progress with his coaching style - to always 
listen first, 

"I feel that a good coach must listen and 
know his players in order to teach them," 
stated Murray. 

The main reason he began coaching is 
because the more he taught soccer, the more 
involved he'd get with what he could ac- 

complish as a coach. 

Kuntz and Sean Roche, CLU soccer 
coaches, have also had a strong impact on 
Murray's coaching. 

"One of the best opportunities offered to 
me here at CLU, is the chance to work with 
two tremendous licensed-A coaches," said 

Murray is playing lor the Sim i Valley Siege, 
a semi-professional team. He also coaches at 
Oak Park High School and for the Las 
Virgenes soccerclubafter the season at CLU. 

"Whether it's playing or coaching, I try to 
adapt to several styles," said Murray. 

Murray says he most enjoys keeping play- 
ers in the right frame of mind before games. 

"I like to bring the team aside during warm- 
ups and make sure everyone is mentally on 
track. Because I still play soccer, I can relate 
to the intensity and energy on the field," said 

CORE 21 orientation 

On Friday, Oct. 9, from 10 to 10:50 a.m., all fresh- 
men students are invited to an orientation meeting in 
the Preus-Brandt Forum at which CORE 21 Gen- 
eral Education courses will be described. Students 
are encouraged to attend because they will learn how 

CORE 21 works.

Bob Shoup 

His new location is 25 miles northwest of 
the Thousand Oaks' CLU campus where he 
is most noted for coaching. As the Kingsmen 
coach, he compiled a 185-87-6 record in- 
cluding 21 winning seasons. From 1963- 
1982, Shoup had a winning record each 
season except in 1972 when the Kingsmen 
were 5-5. 

Shoup led the Kingsmen to 13 National 
Association of Intercollegiate Athletics 
District 3 titles, five NAIA playoff appear- 
ances, three NAIA championship 
gameappearances and in 1971 he brought 
home CLU's only national championship, 
in any sport. 

Now, Bob, who has been coaching Rick 
for many years and even had Rick as an 
assistant at CLU, is Rick's assistant at Santa 
Paula High School. 

"It's quite a thrill for me to see Bob and 
Rick coach together again, only this time 
the roles are reversed!" commented the 
mother-wife of the pair, Helen, who added, 
"Bob is doing what he loves and knows best 
- coaching football. There is a mutual re- 
spect between the two of them. It's some- 
thing very special for a father and a son to 
work together. They share the joys, cares 
and responsibilities together. We, as a fam- 
ily, have a team to follow now and that's 

All freshman need to adapt in one form or 
another, but 1 1 hatching Regal soccer play- 
ers have one more challenge to kick around. 

It has been a mad fight to field a single 
varsity team with select players to fill the 
ranks. Many cuts were made because the 
proposal for a junior varsity team was de- 

Head coach George Kuntz explained to 
the 21 member varsity squad, that he'd start 
the best proven players. Only two freshman 
have earned starting positions: Defender 
Lea Stankevich and leading scorer Joey 
A I lard have demonstrated skills superior 
enough to be listed in the starting lineup. 

Allard, a Newbury Park High graduate, 
compiled many honors at the high school 
level. She explains, "Things aren't going to 
come easy for me anymore. I'm going to 
have to fight for my position." 

It's obvious there is intense inter-squad 
competition, but dominating individual de- 
sires must be calmed for quality team play. 
Freshman Kim Carroll speculates that the 
competition needed to make the squad fol- 
lowed the team on to the field and contrib- 
uted to a pair of early-season losses. 

Assistant coach Scott Murray elaborates 
that the high school to college transition is 

"They have to adjust from stardom to 
team oriented play." 

Allard learned that she "can't just go with 
the ball." She realizes that it's not realistic or 
advantageous for one player to be savior. 
The Regals have proven that there is a 
sturdy backbone of players who are work- 
ing toward a common cause ... a Regal 

Captain Kristin Butler insists, "We are 
assured that the bench is just as strong as 
what's on the field. The starters don't have 
to pace themselves but we can go all out." 
Opportunities have allowed the non- 
starters to get game time. 

"Given the opportunity all the freshman 
can prove themselves on the field," Murray 

Jodi Larson said she was prepared to "sit 
the bench" but also ready to work very hard. 

Of course the hero change is odd but, the 
family-like comaradare off the field en- 
ables the adjustment 

Apparently, this adjustment has come like 
second nature. The combination of new 
talent and success producing teamwork is 
the key to success. 

Westminster coach congratulates Bob 
Shoup on his 30-14 victory over the Ti- 
tans for the national championship on 
Dec. 4, 1971.

Senate allocates money for pool table, repairs 

By Amy Anderson 


In a 12-to-4 vote, the ASCLU Senate 
approved approximately $1,300 for a new 
pooltable in the Student Union Building and 
S300 for the resurfacing of the existing table 
at its Oct. 6 meeting. The SI ,600 will come 
outof the capital expenditures account, which 
was set up for improving "permanent cam- 
pus structures," according to ASCLU Trea- 
surer Kirsten Nicholson. Eleven percent of 
student fees go to this account. 

The new table will be ordered within the 
next two weeks and will be in the SUB 
before the end of the month, Nicholson said. 
Five hundred dollars was donated by the 
CLU Guild last week for the purpose of 
buying a new pooltable. When this money 
surfaces in the summer, it will be deposited 
into the account, making the total spent for 
the pooltables $1,100. 
Other plans for improving permanent cam- 
pus structures include: building a sand vol- 
leyball court, for $7,500, behind Afton 
Hall. installing lights for the outdoor basket- 
ball courts outside of Pedcrson Hall. Previ- 
ously, the capital expenditures account has 
allocated SI 5,000 in 1990 for refurbishing 

the CLU weight room. The account bal- 
ance for capital expenditures for the full 
1992-93 school year is $22, 623.

Russell will 
propose 33% 
increase in 
student fees 

By Charlie Flora 


Looking to increase student fees for the 
fi'sl time since 1984, ASCLU President 
Jason Russell announced Friday that he is 
proposing a 33 percent hike to start with all 
the 1993-94 undergraduate students. Russell 
will take his proposal to the Student Life 
Committee, then present it to the Board of 
Regents at its Oct. 23 meeting. If approved, 
the plan would then go to the Senate's 
budget meeting in February. 

Under this plan, student fees will go from 
S 1 50 a year to $200 a year for all full-time 
undergraduate students, Russell said.The 
plan will also include raising student fees 
by $5 per student every year after next year. 
The reason for the increase, according to 
Russell, is to accompany the addition of 
two groups into Senate: Inter Residence 
Hall Council, which was added two years 
ago, and the Commuter Representative, who

"Student fees haven't been increased since

Cost of textbooks on the rise, studies show 

By Maristella Contreras 


As if most students weren't already aware 
of it, studies are showing a dramatic in- 
crease in textbook costs. 

According to information provided by 
the College Press Service, one study shows 
that "...of 85,000 textbooks, nearly 22,000 
had a price increase from publishers from 
February through July 1992 of an average 
of $1.75. 

Other price increases from the study (the 
yearly figures are based on a February to 
February time period) include: 1992 to 
1992, $2.65 or 9.1 percent; 1990 to 1991, 
$2.70 or 10 percent; 1989 to 1990, $2.54 or 
9.5 percent." 

When you see these figures at first, they 
may not seem so frightening but when a 
book is bought at $40 one year then $50 the 
next year, the increase is very apparent, and 
subsequently quite upsetting. 

Dawn Gross, the text book manager at 
CLU, stated that the books are "rising with 
the economy and that the publishers are 

charge more for their books. This forces 
CLU to buy from publishing houses instead 
of a wholesaler, which leads to the higher 
costs of books for students. 

Many students are upset about the high 
cost of books. Senior Lynnc Fruehling fell 
that books "cost a lot, but that it is competi- 
tive with other schools." 

Julie Krabel, a senior, stated: "I have no 
money once I buy my books." Despite the 
high costs of books, however, CLU is quite 
fair in their pricing compared to other 
schools. Both Fruehling and Jon Fleming, a 
junior, believe the cost of books at CLU is 
reasonable compared to state schools. 

CLU is attempting to keep costs of books 
down by giving 50 percent refunds to books 
that are in good condition. 

Solutions to keeping book expenses low 
are being developed. 

Some professors are putting together an- 
thologies by "...getting publishers' permis- 
trying to make money." Gross also stated that all new books will have to be ordered, sion to copy sections of books and compile 
that "more books are being made into new The people affected by this most are those them into one 'course pack." This has been 
editions," meaning that the books used now taking math and science courses. This means seen as "an increasingly popular altema- 
will be obsolete for the next semester, and that the publishing companies are going to live."

Student fees are paid each semester by 
students who take nine units or more, 
Nicholson said. 
The proposed increase came as a sigh of 
relief from most of the Senate. "In the 
Senate constitution it says that publications 
can't take up more than 25 percent," Publi- 
cations Commissioner Cynthia Fjeldseth 
said. "Right now publications takes up 
over 50 percent.If student fees aren't raised, 

there will have to be a charge for the 
yearbook and possibly the Morning Glory."

in the article, entitled "Luedtke addresses

Boe discusses Columbus, responds to Sale 

By Joel Ervice 


Dr. Jonathan Boe, an associate professor 
of History at CLU, spoke on the impact the 
discovery of America had on its native 
people in the Preus-Brandt Forum on Ocl 
5. The speech was the third of a continuing 
four- speech series on the impact of Co- 
lumbus' voyage. 

Boe's speech highlighted the reasons be- 
hind the disintegration of native American 
life and culture, citing that as many as 50 to 
95 percent of the native population was 
wiped out in the course of the European 

Boe mentioned portions of a previous 
speech, given by Kirkpatrick Sale, that 
stated the Indians were destroyed because 
of European society driven by greed, a 
deranged religiosity and a view of nature as 
a hostile, violent place. 

Boe stated that there were several points 
arguing Sale's theory. Among them in- 
clude it is impossible to condemn a whole 
society, as Boe contends Sale does. Boe 
also mentioned that there was no paradise 

for the Europeans to conquer and that the 
Indians themselves were contributing to 
thedestructionof their environment through 
wasteful hunting practices and a careless- 
ness with their land. 

A separate reason, often overlooked ac- 
cording to Boe, for the downfall of the 
Indians, is that they "were victims of a 
process that would have happened no mat- 
ter what" 

His assertion had two points: the Indians 
were subject to European diseases, and the 
injection of European culture into the In- 
dian lifestyle could only bring about a 
people that were no longer Indians. 

Boe had a well documented account of 
the Indian ' s struggle with disease. He stated 
that estimates of Indian fatality from dis- 
ease ranges anywhere from 50 to 95 per- 
cent of the entire population killed, all 
within a time period of 100 years. The 
"collective wisdom of a (Indian) genera- 
tion could be wiped out in a week." 

Boe went on to state that "disease pre- 
vented Indians from fighting when they 
could," as the Indians feared the European ' s 
"invisible bullets" ofthechicken pox, small 

pox and other illnesses. 

Boe's second point held that with the 
intermingling of cultures, the only result 
could have been the partial, possibly even 
the total, loss of the Indian's lifestyle. This 
occurred as the Indians became more 
dependant upon European technology. So 
dependant, it seems, that the Indians began 
to need the Europeans for what they re- 
quired in everyday life. 

This pattern of continual dependency upon 
the European culture began with the fur 
trade, as Indians would start hunting ani- 
mals to trade for metal goods, guns, ammu- 
nition and alcohol. This pattern continued 
until even the Indians admitted that they 
could not "live with out Europeans." 

Boe commented that several attempts were 
made by the Indians to seek a rejuvenated 
nation by either attacking the Europeans or 
moving further west, ahead of the European 
rush. Whatever their method, however, the 
Indians still faced destruction, Boe said. 

Replying to his own question of "could 
have things been better, and if so how?" 
Boe said that "whether anything better (was) 
possible is hard to say."

McGrath has been involved with execu- 
tive education and management develop- 
ment experience at the University of Michi- 
gan Business School, University of South- 
em California, the University of Delaware 
School of Business and Rockefeller Col- 
lege of Public Affairs and Policy. 

Dr. Charles S. Mathews, named assistant 
professor of business, was most recently 
and adjunct professor at Pepperdine Uni- 
versity and prior to that an adjunct lecturer 
at USC, where he also earned his Ph.D. In 
1987, while at USC, he was named Under-

Paul R. Williams, appointed instructor in

difficult languages for native English speak- 
ers to learn. She explains that the difficulty of 
Russian lies in the numerous inflections pos- 
sible. An added obstacle for students is the 
difference between the Cyrillic and English 

Nowakowski (a Polish, not Russian, name) 
developed an interest in Russia at an early age. 
Her father, a physicist, used to bring her toys 
from the Soviet Union when she was a child. 

At the age of 17, Nowakowski went to the 
Soviet Union to study at Leningrad State Uni- 
versity. She arrived with two years knowledge 
of the language. Her stay lasted for six months 
in the fall.' She returned for another summeV 

Being an American in the Soviet Union was 
not as difficult as may be imagined. The Sovi- 
ets could tell that Nowakowski was an Ameri- 

can by her clothing and the good condi- 
tion of her teeth. 

But that was still the time of the Cold 
War. Nowakowski remembers beginning 
many a conversation by answering the 
question, "Why do you Americans want 
war?" She says that the Soviets were fed 
misinformation about the United States 
by their communist government. They 
were told to fear Americans. 

Once past the circumspect manner of 
the Soviets, Nowakowski found them to 
be "warm and wonderful." 

She will not be returning to what is now 
Russia for at least a year and a half 
because she is four months pregnant with 
her first child. When she returns, she 
would like to work with the Fulbright 
Program in order to teach English, Rus- 
sian Literature or English Literature. 

As for this semester, Nowakowski is 
pleased with the student response to Rus- 
sian. One student is applying for study in 
Russia and two others will be attending 
Dr. Jerry Slattum's trip over Christmas to 
study Russian art

If a day of fishing upon the high seas 
sounds like fun, you may want to give 
Harbor Village Sport Fishing a try. 
Harbor Village Sport Fishing in Ventura 
is a company owned and operated by 
Louie Abbot, who started the business in 
June 1992. He has been the owner of other 
sport fishing companies and has spent the 
past 40 years of his life dedicated to the 

They have four boats, which range 
from 43 to 68 feet in length. 

The crew is typically made up of a 
captain and one or two deck hands. The 
captain is responsible for piloting the 
vessel and the deck hands aid the anglers 
with rig setup, the landing offish as well 
as offering other types assistance. 

The boats have half- , three-quarter- 
and full-day schedules. During the week 
the half-day boats depart at 10 a.m. and 
return about4 p.m. On the weekends they 
have two half-day trips from which to 
choose: 7 a.m. until noon and from 12:30 
to 5:30 p.m. 

The Seabiscuit, which is their three- 
quarter-day boat leaves at 6 a.m . daily and 
the trip lasts about 10 hours. The all-day 
trip is aboard the Highliner, which departs 
at 5 a.m. and returns at 5 p.m. all week. 
According to Abbott, anglers have been 
doing mostly surface fishing on light 
tackle. Most of the fish caught lately have 
been calico bass, rock fish, sheephead and 
white fish. AbboU also said, "Hopefully 
the yellowtail will start biting soon." 

Trip prices are as follows: S23 for the 
half-day trip. S29 for the three-quarter- 
day and the all-day boat costs $35. 

During the week they feature buddy 
day. Pay the regular price for the half-day 
ticket and a friend can come along free. 

All trips include the ride, bait and the 
assistance of the crew. You will need to 
bring your own rod and tackle or they can 
rent you a surface rod for an additional $7.

Intramurals too competitive? 
Here are tips to remember 

October 12. 1W2 


By Gretchen Gies 


I recall writing an article a few weeks ago 
describing CLU's intramural program. I was 
delighted to learn that Intramurals was a 
popular and fun way to meet fellow students 
and staff. Intramural football was calling 
my name by advertising fun and sun. Yet, I 
have to admit, I was not completely sold. 

The paradoxical description "friendly com- 
petition" has haunted me since the moment 
I tapped out the letters on my keyboard and 
agreed to play. 

I feel as though I've overexaggerated this 
ideal competition. 

It's accurate to describe Sunday afternoons 
as competitive. Players look forward to fleet- 
ing down the field for a long-bomb pass. 
Others are satisfied with one good block and 
the honor of being included in a victory 

Then there is that diabolic group of people 
who are out for blood. The game whistle 
blows and bodies are transformed into power- 
driven machines destined to gain some per- 
sonal glory by any means. 

These fiends play as if it's Super Bowl 
Sunday with fantasies of rings and cash 
awaiting them after 40 minutes of play. 
Whatever! (We play on half of a soccer field 
with minimal fans, just those waiting for 
their place in the spotlight.) 

I don't think "friendly" has been repre- 
sented well in this weekly release of pent 
up emotions. Unfortunately, intramural 
foootball has become infamous for broken 
bones, stiff necks, scraped legs, scratched 
arms and even bite marks! 

I've even noticed that the post-game line 
slap, your hands-together tradition, has 
become obsolete. 

Dirty looks and crusties flit across the 
campus. Competitors can't even spit out 
the courtesy "Hi" because they are still 
upset about a poor referee call against 

I see very few signs of "friendly" cama- 
raderie between oposing players. 

Of course' I share in part of the blame 
contributing to the unfriendly atmosphere. 
Even more so, it's not a particular person's 

But, I'd rather not harp on the problem. 
Instead, I'll supply a few words of wisdom 
we all can benefit from, as suggested by 
Robert Fulghum in "All I Really Need To 
Know I Learned in Kindergarten": 

1 . Say you are sorry when you hurt some- 

2. Put things back where you found them. 

3. Play fair. 

4. Don't hit people. 

5. Share everything. 

And last of all . . . Good luck!

Teamwork is vital to both players and coaches 

By Gretchen Gies 


Everyone knows the game of football is 
centered around teamwork. Without 
cooperation and each player executing his 
job, a team can not succeed. (Take for 
example the illustrious John Elway and the 
Denver Broncos. Without Elway the 
Broncos wouldn't have made Super Bowl 

Teamwork is also a vital force needed in 
the coaching staff. This season the 
Kingsman record fails to show the quality 
of teamwork behind the scenes. 

Joe Harper, in his third season at CLU, is 
the head coach of seven assistant coaches 
who provide the Kingsman an offensive 
and defensive framework: KyleTarpenning

Like the athletes, each coach prime tunes 
specific areas to contribute to the team play. 
Tarpenning insists it's just part of the job 
for each person to do his own part. 
Tarpenning explains thata typical practice, 
which runs for two hours, is a build up 

Usually coaches direct individual and 
position skills, run a small group seven- 
seven skeleton pass, and finally bring it all 

together at the end of the practice. 

Not only is lime dedicated in practice, 
coaches spend a considerable amount of 
time developing plays and viewing films 
off the field. 

Tarpenning says, "Not including 
preparation for academic duties, practice, 
and films, I contribute another six hours a 
day to football." 

This timely devotion is typical of quality 
football programs, but several Kingsman 
coaches have taken the teamwork one step 
further to off-the-field bonding activities. 

Squires brings the offensive line over to 
his house on Wednesdays for pie. Marmion 
and the linebackers frequent the local yogurt 
shopsand have been toGolf'n' Stuff recently.

amount of lime recruiting for the next

for correspondence between prospective

Needless to say, a lot of these efforts are 
lost in the pile up. Many efforts are

a seemingly losing season is in the making. 

Those Kingsmen on the field are not just 
individual players, a great offensive or

of a head coach.

Reverend Dr. Herbert Chilstrom, bishop 
of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in 
America, will be the keynote speaker at this 
year's 33rd annual Founders Day Convoca- 
tion in the Samuelson Chapel. The theme of 
the convocation service, which is open to all 
students at 10 a.m. on Oct. 23, is "Interac- 
tion of Faith and Learning." 

The two-day convocation invites 100 
convocators to the campus to meet with 
CLU's 34 regents to worship, dine, socialize 
and to serve the greater purpose of electing 
nine regents. The convocators act as "the 
stockholders of a corporation" according to 
Beverly Caulkins, director of church rela- 
tions, and are the representatives of Regent 
II of the ELCA . 

Making up 80 percent of the convoctors 
are those ELCA Regent II representatives of 
the following states: Hawaii, Wyoming, 
Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, California, 
Nevada, Colorado and El Paso Texas. 

Five bishops from Regent II will also be at 
CLU for the convocation. 

The other convocators include student, 
faculty, community and county represen- 
tatives. This year's student representatives

CLU is one step closer to building its radio 
tower after previous tries to get city approval 

to do so failed. 

The Thousand Oaks City Council voted 4- 
Oct. 13 to allow CLU to pursue a new 
location for the tower and speed up the pro- 
cess of getting the tower built, but that pro- 
cess still figures to be time consuming. 

The university wants to speed things up in 
hopes to save some money. Kathryn Torres, 
the auomey representing CLU on the tower 
project, said, "We're hoping for administra- 
tive action. We were hoping to proceed as 
quickly as we could." 

That kind of action may take a while. CLU 
had hoped to rewrite the city's permit appli- 
cation, but the city may want to have an 
environmental study of the site before the 
lower can be built. This could take several 
months to complete. 

There are other obstacles CLU will have to 
face before they can start to build the lower. 
Philip Gatch, the director of planning for 
Thousand Oaks, said that the proposed lower 
site is still zoned for residential use. This will 
have to change before construction on the 
tower can begin. 

CLU also needs a new permit from ihe 
FCC. The university applied for a new permit 
in August after the old one expired, but a new 
license has not been granted yet. 

The proposed 150-foot-high radio antenna 
would be located near the Conejo Grade, 200 
feet within the Thousand Oaks city boundary 
if approved after environmental reports, re- 
zoning and more hearings. 

According to Thousand Oaks Mayor Rob- 
ert Lewis, the lower will blend in well with 
power lines located near the proposed an- 
tenna site. That issue had caused problems 
with approval of CLU's first site choice. 

The university had planned on building the

Young people showing increased interest in upcoming elections 

By College Press Service 

With just a few weeks until the presiden- 
tial election, student interest in the race 
between President Bush and his Demo- 
cratic contender Bill Clinton is keen, po- 
litical observers said, belying the notion 
that young people don 't care about govern- 

'There is more interest in this election 
than we've probably seen in the last three 
elections," said Ralph Baker, a political 
science professor at Ball State University 
in Muncie, Ind. 

With the economy in the doldrums and 
issues such as abortion and the environ- 
ment in the forefront of the campaign, this 
year's presidential election has captured 
the interest of thousands of college and 
university students, activists say, pointing 
to the number of young people who are 
registering to vote. 

"Smart politicians are refocusing efforts 
on campus, especially to bring in a new and 
empowered electorate," said Mike Dolan, 
field director for California-based Rock 
the Vote, a non-profit, non-partisan orga- 
nization that organized voter registration 
drives nationwide. 'The thematic reason is 
that the youth vote has become a target, a 
real opportunity for change." 
The opportunity to register to vote for the 
Nov. 3 election is over in most states. 
However, representatives of several orga- 
nizations that held voter registration drives 
said they registered hundreds of thousands 

of students in time for the election, indicat- 
ing that interest in the election is high. 

Rock the Vote has registered 225,000 stu- 
dents as voters, Dolan said. Rock the Vote, 
based in Beverly Hills, was founded in 1990 
by leading record labels and musicians in 
response to perceived threats to artistic ex- 
pression. It was broadened to include regis- 
tering the youth and getting them out to vote. 

"Something is percolating on college cam- 
puses among the voters," Dolan said. "Young 
people are ready and eager to take back the 
system from the politics as usual." 

The Center for Policy Alternatives and the 
National Civil League held a voter registra- 
tion drive OcL 1 at 44 colleges and universi- 
ties. Although a final count hasn't been 
tabulated, some of the results including reg- 
istering 4,300 students at the University of 
Wisconsin-Madison, 2,000 at the Univer- 
sity of New Mexico and 800 at the Univer- 

sity of Colorado at Bolder, said Burck Smi th, 
a program assistant for the center. 

"I think there is a resurgence of youth 
interest in politics again. The issues are 
imposing," he said. "All the talk about the 
national debt weighs on our nation 's youth. 
They look at the job market and there's not 
much available. College students say the 
environment and other issues are starting to 
hit home. 

While Texas billionaire Ross Perot is 
back in the race after dropping out in July 
has caused some alterations in campaign 
strategies, national polls suggest that his re- 
emergence will do little to change the out- 

"Perot is not a charismatic figure who 
would appeal to the young," said Joe Losco, 
who teaches American government at Ball 
State University. "I don't think he's ex- 
cited them, especially since he quit and 

jumped back in again." 

According to the latest Census Bureau 
figuresavailablc, 26 million men and women 
in the 18-24 age group are eligible to vote, 
and about 40 percent of this group is regis- 
tered. In contrast, there are 40.7 million 
people ages 25 to 44 years, and 58 percent 
are registered to vote. The highest percent- 
age of those registered to vote — 76 percent 
— are those age 65 years old and older. 

"Students are less cynical, less than in the 
last four to eight years," Baker said. "They 
talk of change, but maybe they're putting 
too much hope in change. Maybe they are 
t J red of the same people running the coun- 

The next step is to get registered voters to 
the polls, Dolan and Smith said. An ad hoc 
coalition made up of Rock the Vote, the 
Center for Policy Alternatives, the United

McGrath, despite efforts, forced to talk welfare 

By Loran Lewis 


Although she tried to focus on themes of 
education, tax reform and agriculture, Roz 
McGrath, Democratic candidate for the 37th 
state Assembly District, members of her 
audience kept returning to one issue. 

"I know a lot of people who are getting 
welfare who don't deserve it," a student 
attending McGrath's OcL 12 campus cam- 
paign appearance said. "How are you going 
to stop these scams?" 

"We've got to implement a system ... to

McGrath responded. 

As the Ventura County Democrat sparred 
with several questioners about jobs vs. 
welfare, she did manage to make some 

"Welfare reform is offering more job 
opportunity," she said. "Welfare reform is 
not cutbacks." 

McGrath stressed the need for training to

minimum-wage jobs at fastfood restaurants 

or making more money by remaining on 

McGrath told her audience of about 40 
students and faculty members in Nygreen 1 
people don't want to be on welfare, but the 
high cost of living in California, especially 
housing, creates need for assistance. She 
said the average person remains on welfare 
for about two years. 

And although she would be dragged back 

to that subject, McGrath did touch on some 

of her campaign platforms in her race against

Journalist speaks on media, elections 

By Maristella Contreras 


The media is the most influential way of 
communicating in the 20th century, Los 
Anglees Times reporter and free-lance 
writer Robert Scheer told his spoke at the 
Preus-Brandt Forum Oc 19. 

Scheer's lecture, "The Media, Election 
and the Environment" was part of the 
"Where on Earth Are We?" series deliv- 
ered each Monday throughout the semes- 

The author said that if a person is to walk 

in the poorest house in America the televi- 
sion would be on. Why? As Scheer said, 
"the media has leveled the dreams and aspi- 

Television, Scheer feels, brings the dreams 
to the home and makes it a reality to the 
people. The media is also such big business 
that it can form images it feels the public 
should believe in. 

One example he gave about the media 
power was about the movie "JFK." Scheer 
felt that whether the movie was wrong or 
right, John F. Kennedy's assassination will 
always be discussed. The media marketed 

the movies for profit and created an image 
that many of the public believed in. 

Scheer also spoke about elections, feel- 
ing that the media has more power then the 

He believes that the president's sovereignty 
has been taken away. The president does 
not have the power to do everything in 
which we the voters believe he is able to do 
and should do. 

Politicians, Scheer believes, should tackle 
the issues of racism, education, the living 
conditions in the urban areas; these are the 
topics that should be discussed and changed.

Video shows tragedy of Somalia 

By Joel Ervice 


On Oct. 14, in a classroom adjacent to the 
Samuelson Chapel, a small group met to 
watch a video about the tragedy and starva- 
tion facing the people of Somalia. 

The video had just been released, and 
was narrated by Dr. Norman Barth, the 
excutive director of Lutheran World Re- 
lief, who has spent considerable time in the 
famine ravaged country. 

The video was the first in a four-part 
series of "Global Updates," which will be 
held in the Chapel Lounge. The program is 
sponsored by Campus Ministry, and is an 
"opportunity to learn first-hand what is 
happening around the world from your 

fellow students," according to a flyer that 
was distributed. The preceding weeks will 
discuss troubled areas such as Yugoslavia 
and Bulgaria. 

This particular presentation was given by 
Global Peace and Justice, a committee from 
the Lord of Life Congregation. Also present 
at the meeting was the CLU coordinator, 
Kristin Lemmon. 

The video gave a very frank view of the 
suffering in Somalia, as well as the steps 
being taken to combat the famine. The food 
shortage is so bad in the African country, 
that many people are forced to walk hun- 
dreds of miles in hope of food. One example 
given was of a 3-year-old girl, too weak to 
eat solid food after walking 150 miles and

Mountain climb ends on wet note 

By College Press Service 

It was the weather and not the desire that 
halted the St Lawrence University's Out- 
ing Club from climbing 46 peaks in New 
York's Adirondack Mountains. 

After deciding which day would be great 
for hiking in fall weather, Jim Rodewald.a 
St. Lawrence senior and president of the 
Outing Club, got enough interest going to 
attract about 230 students and alumni on 
the climbs. 

The weather, it seems, had other plans. 

For the past 12 years the club has spon- 
sored the climb on a series of 46 mountains 
in the Adirondack. All the mountains are 
3,800 feet or higher, and St. Lawrence 
students hike to the top of all 46 mountains. 

Some years are more successful than oth- 

On Sept. 26, the weather turned cold, 
rainy and windy. But students climbed to 
the top of 35 peaks anyway, Rodewald 
said. "It was probably in the 40s," he said. 
"The weather kind of turned some people 

However, the purpose of the climb is to 
involve people who usually wouldn't hike 
into the great outdoors for a day of fresh 
air, exercise and communing with nature. 

"Actually, in terms of getting people on 
the mountains and out into the wilderness 
who wouldn't have gone, it was fantas- 
tic," the biology major said. "I tried to 
time it with the fall foliage. Two years ago 
we hit it right on the nose."

Senate discusses self-defense week 

By Amy Anderson 


Jennifer Joseph appeared before the 
Student Senate Oct. 14 ASCLU to request 
the help of Senate members in organizing 
a self-defense week during January. 

Joseph explained that the week-long 
seminar is presently gaining support from 
Residence Life, the Women's Resource 
Center and Health Services. 

The Senate showed an interest in helping 
and several members volunteered to help. 

The recent senior class fund-raiser, a 
biannual I ip sync in the Preus-B randt Forum 
on Oct 10, raised a net profit of $500, 
announced Senior Class President Rod 

The Senate has decided to try a new 
program of inviting several clubs or 
activities to join one of their Wednesday 
evening meetings in the SUB in order for 
them to be aware of campus activities as 
well as to inform the Senate of the club's 
purpose and activities, said ASCLU Vice 
President Kristine Strand. 
The Latin American Student Organ ization 
made its debut at the Oct. 14 meeting. Four 
of their 63 members were present. LASO 
has open meetings every other Monday at 
7 p.m. in the Preus-Brandt Forum or in the 
Nelson Room. 

The group is involved in things such as 
the Homecoming parade, political 
awareness and inter-club sports. It is 
organizing a free dance on Oct. 23 and the 

visit of Anita Perez Ferguson Oct. 26. 

Junior Sal Frias encouraged the Senate to 
sign a petition that is making its way around 
campus proposing that homeless shelters be 
built in Thousand Oaks. 

The last day for seniors to have their 
pictures taken is Oct. 31 announced 
Publications Commissioner Cynthia 

Melanie Hudes announced that 
Housekeeping has complained about signs 
being taped to sidewalks and floors 
throughout the campus. Because of the 
difficulty of cleanup, they requested that 
this practice be discontinued.

States Student Association, the Americans 
for Democratic Action and the Campus 
Green Vote is working on a plan to gel out 
the vote. 

Tony Zagotta, president of the College 
Republicans, said his group's registration 
drive was a success. College Republicans 
registered 10,000 students at Texas A&M, 
500 students at Memphis Stale University 
in Tennessee and 3,000 young people in 

"Both campaigns are reaching out to young 
people. There is anxiety about the future of 
our country," he said. "America is in a 
transitional period. This election will de- 
cide what path the U.S. will take into the 
2 1 st century."

Republican Nao Takasugi, the mayor of Ox- 
nard, to represeni the district thai includes 
most of Thousand Oaks, as well as Oxnard, 
Moorpark and Camarillo. 

She said California is really "acouniry within 
a country" and has to consider its (own) spe- 
cial needs. Coming from a farming family, 
McGrath noted that Ventura County was 10th 
among stale counties in agricultural produc- 
tion and that the slate produced more than 50 
percent of the nation's food. 

She defended agricultural water subsidies 
saying, "Farmers aren't using 85 percent of 
the (stale's) water, people are using 100 per- 
cent The reason you pay 69 cents for a head of 
lettuce in the grocery store instead of S 1 .69 is 
because of subsidized water." 

McGrath tried to draw a distinction between 
herself and her opponent. She called Takasugi 
a "bought politician" because of his special- 
interest campaign contributions. She said a 

medical association had donated $ 1 0,000 
to Takasugi 's campaign, and later added 
that a law enforcement agency had do- 
nated $15,000 to his campaign. 

Comparing her $35,000 in donations 
to Takasugi 's $250,000, McGrath said 
she is running a grassroots campaign and 
criticized campaign financing. 

"My opponent says this is his civil right 
to raise as much money as he can, bul 
what thissays is that if you don't have big 
money, you can't be part of this political 

McGrath also called for more money 
for education and job training. She sug- 
gested that one way lo pay for it would be 
through higher laxes on foreign or out-of- 
state investors who come into California 
and buy property. She said three proper- 
lies surrounding her family farm have 
been purchased recently by Pacific Rim 

She admitted, however, that she did not 
know how much money such a program 
would generate.

lo feed themselves. 

On ihe outskirts of every emergency shelter,

The video also pointed out that a great relief 
effort has arisen to aid the ravaged country.

Students put to the test during annual 
Alcohol Awareness Week on campus 

By Amy Walz 


Showcased by four days of planned ac- 
tivities in the Student Union Building.a 
wrecked car in front of Nygreen Hall and 
all over campus students dressed as dead 
drunk drivers, Alcohol Awareness Week 
informed CLU students on the hazards of 
drinking and driving Oct. 12-15. 

"Just Do It -- Party Smart" was the theme 
of the week, which coincided with the 
National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness 
Week and CLU's Homecoming. 

Last year's theme was "Drink With In- 
telligence." Promoters of the week, who 
weren't afraid to acknowledge the reality 
of alcohol consumption on campus, fo- 
cused on making students aware of alter- 
natives and to be knowledgeable of the 
effects of alcohol. 

"Be smart about drinking . . . know that 
there are alternatives," said Bill Slott, 
CLU's direc tor of Residence Life. A popu- 
lar alternative, offered twice during the 
week, was mocktail parties. Members of 
the Inner Residence Hall Committee served 
virgin cocktails, such as pina coladas and 
strawberry daquines. On Monday, about 
200 students attended the mocktail party, 
where free cups and keychains were of- 

In an effort to raise student awareness to 
the number of college-age deaths rela ted to 
alcohol -related driving accidents, CLU's 
Drama Club and IRHC joined together for 
"Dead Day" on Monday. Students wore all 
black clothes, had their faces painted white 
and remained silent all day to illustrate the 

As a constant reminder to students, a 
truck involved in an alcohol -related acci- 
dent was on display under the flag pole 
next to Nygreen Hall throughout the week. 

Students had gutter sundaes in the Stu- 
dent Union Building on Tuesday and 
Ventura County Medical Examiner Craig 
Stevens presented a slideshow on the ef- 
fects of drinking and driving. On Wednes- 

Siri Helrick/F.cho 

Gabrielle Boesche, Pat Norville mix non-alcoholic drinks for Alcohol Awareness 

day, the Ventura County Sherriff's Depu- 
ties took legal drinking age students off 
campus, and relumed them with different 
levels of intoxication. The effects of drink- 
ing vary according to height, weight, build, 
etc. The students were asked to perform 
various field sobriety tests, just as if they 
had been stopped at a check point. Sopho- 
more Allison Pilmer, one of the students 
who had what would amount to only one 
drink at a bar, seemed the most intoxicated. 
Deke Beveridge performed reasonably 
well, although his blood alcohol level was 
the highest. 

Bill Stolt stated the three main points of 
the program: 

• to show how people are impaired with 
alcohol in their system 

• to show how they think they aren't 
intoxicated when they actually are 

• to show how people can get arrested for 
what they think have low levels of intoxica- 

On Thursday, the CLU's Peer Health 

Educators presented a program entitled: 

"Alternatives to Drinking In The Conejo 


Senior Bobbi Beck, president of IRHC, 

summed the week up: "If we can save 
someone's life from getting ruined, then 
we've accomplished a lot." 

The main coordinators were members 
of the IRHC. The office of Residence 
Life sponsored the events. 

Residence Life uses student fines to 
fund activities such as Alcohol Aware- 
ness Week. The fines are paid by stu- 
dents who have been written up three 
times for a violating the dry-campus 
policy or any campus policy. 

It is required for students with two 
write-ups to attend an on-campus educa- 
tional meeting concerning alcohol abuse. 

"Society says it's OK (to drink), and 
that's fine, but just be smart about it," 
Stolt concluded. 

Melissa O'Hara, resident director of 
Mt. Clef Residence Hall and IRHC ad- 
viser, pointed out that in the 1991 U.S. 
National Highway Traffic and Safety 
Administration statistics 3,210 people 
between the age of 18 and 21 die in car 
accidents each year. 

Students were also told that in Ventura 
County alone, 27 people died of alcohol- 
related accidents during 1991. 

Hansen details Columbus' "Global Impact' in series 

By Steve Deeth 


The Chinese, not the Spanish, were the 
first great explorers of the world, Paul 
Hansen, associate professor of history , told 
a Preus-Brandl Forum audience Oct. 12. 

Hansen spoke on "The Global Impact of 
Columbus' Discovery" in the ongoing 
"Where On Earth Are We?" lecture scries. 

The CLU professor said thai in 1405, the 
eralvc n die name 

of their leader, Cheng Ho. They were look- 
ing to find strange lands that would give 
them new wealth. In their combined voy- 
ages, they used 62 ships and 28,000 men. 
The Chinese sailed the coast of India 
around to the western part of Africa, look- 
ing to add to their wealth, but what can you 
give to a dynasty that already has every- 
thing? Hansen asked. 

His second point was on the major prob- 
lems of the Columbian exchange. The first 
was the inflation of g<xxls as they were sent 

across the Asian lands. The middle men 
would add their prices to the booty, which 
would raise the price of the goods very 
high. The Europeans finally found a route 
around the southern tip of Africa that 
would eventually keep out the middle 

"The Europeans had nothing to trade 
with and trading was the only way," said 
Hansen. The metals were all they had and 
nobody wanted metals; they were look-

Monster bash highlights Halloween weekend plans 

By Heidi Bateman 


Put on your costumes and gel ready to 
party this year because this Halloween 
numerous on and off campus events are 
scheduled throughout the community. 

To start off the Halloween weekend, 
Thursday, Oct. 29, at theSunset Hills Coun- 
try Club, "Monster Bash" will be returning 
for a second year to host, "the biggest party 
of the year." There will be music and danc- 
ing with a variety of past and current singles 
played by last year's hit disc jockey. 
Costumes are required for adm ittance, so 
don't forget your costume because there 
just might be prizes awarded for the best 

When the party's over, safe rides are 
going to be made available. Volunteerdriv- 

ers will take people home who need rides. 
Ron Jensen, the host of the "Monster 
Bash, " anticipates last year's total of 130- 
150 people in attendance could be doubled 
this Halloween. 

For tickets or information call Jensen at 
58 1-3528 or Janeen at Ext. 385 1 . 

To continue the weekend's festivities, on 
Oct. 30, the director of Food Services at 
CLU, Ian Mac Donald, is encouraging fac- 
ulty and staff to dress up in Halloween 
costumes by donating free lunches to any 
faculty or staff member who comes to lunch 
wearing a costume. 

This does not include just a simple change 
of a tie or color of a dress. Creative costum- 
ing will be the only way to get the free food. 

The CLU Business Office staff will defi- 
nitely be getting free food this year. Ac-

Freshmen hear Core 21 details 
changing academic requirements 

By Kendra Pfenning 


Freshmen gathered in the Preus-Brandt 
Forum Oct. 9 for a detailed explanation by 
Professor Ken Gardner on the requirements 
for the new Core 2 1 , which has been imple- 
mented for this year. 
Core 2 1 consists of four academic catego- 
ries: Proficiencies, Perspectives, Cultures 
and Civilizations, and Integrated Studies. 

Proficiencies includes the English clus- 
ter.oral communications, foreign languages, 
math and computer classes. Computer 
classes have not been mandatory in the past, 
nor were the placement tests, which are 
now used to place students in foreign lan- 
guage and math classes that best suit their 

Students can test out of a class, but will 
receive no credit. 

Perspectives include the humanities 
classes such as history, religion, English 
and philosophy. One course is required of 

each, except religion, which still requires 
two. The Natural Sciences in this section 
will now require two science lectures and 
labs. Social Sciences remain the same. Two 
courses must be selected from departments 
such as sociology, administration of justice 
and history. 

Two courses must be taken in the visual 
and performing arts, only one of which can 
be a one-credit class. Three courses are 
needed to fulfill the health and well-being 

Under the Cultures and Civilizations cat- 
egory, one course is needed in American 
Studies, as well as Gender and Ethnic Stud- 
ies. These courses may also be used to 
complete the Perspectives requirements. 

Integrated Studies includes the freshman 
English cluster, which combines freshman 
English with another Perspectives class and 
the upper-division capstone. As an upper- 
classman, it is required to place an empha- 
sis on a certain class within the major. The 
requirements have not been developed yet

ing for something new. 

In the last half of his talk, Hansen dis- 
cussed the biological consequences in the 
New World discovery . Thedisplacement of 
Europeans and Africans as they were forced 
to leave or were taken from their home- 

Indians were shattered by the disease thai 
killed off most of their people, Hansen said. 
Syphillis was a new disease that devastated 

the New World's population. It caused ex- 
treme symptoms and physical deterioration 
because it was new. It also had a social 
impact because it was thought to be trans- 
mitted by breathing. 

Europeans also brought crops such as 
wheat, barley, fruits and vegetables to the 
New World as well as land animals. 

One of the most important crops was the

Junior prince Randy Cassen and princess Mari Rodriguez embrace during the homecoming parade on Oct. 17 

Parade displays variety of 
styles; LASO wins top prize 

By Stacey Pay and Joel Ervice 


"This is the very first time I have seen 
anything like this," commented Linda 
Thorsen prior to the Homecoming parade, 
held on October 17 on Memorial Parkway. 
Speaking with a few people before the 
parade, it was obvious that excitement filled 
the air. Sophomore Alex Gonzales slated, 
"I'm excited about it. ..I feel it's going to 
run smoothly." 

Despite the late start, the parade did go 
well. The weather was perfect (it rained last 
year), the crowd was both full and enthusi- 
astic, and the floats were both diverse and 

When asked who would win first place, 
Lolita Marquez, the senior princess, re- 
plied, "I think LASO (Latin American Stu- 
dent Association) will win. They look 
tough." True to her prediction, LASO did 
take first place, with its large steaming 
volcano, upon which stood a warrior dressed 
in ancient Latin American attire. 

Second place was taken by the Drama 
Club, who enacted a small fairy tale in front 
of the judging station at Nygreen 1 . One of 
the more original displays, the Drama Club 
told the story of vicious dragons and fear- 
less knights, with the dragon finally being 
placated not by violence, but by a rose, 
given by the court jester, all going on to live 
happily ever after. The skit was accompa- 

nied by music, as well as a storyteller nar- 
rating the actions of the characters. 

The class of 1993, taking third place, 
summoned the crowd to "a royal celebra- 
tion of our heritage." The senior float, from 
which the king issued his grand proclama- 
tion, held a banner which said, "The Future 
is Ours for the Taking." 

Although the Homecoming theme was 
"A Royal Summons," themes varied from 
float to float. Habitat for Humanity dis- 
played a concern for those less fortunate 
with their theme, "Building Homes, Build- 
ing Hope." The banner was enclosed by a 
skeleton of a house. Another notable float 
was by the United Students of the World, 
whose theme was, "One Earth, One King- 

Other floats of the parade included the 
junior float with the Robin Hood theme, the 
sophomore class with a car camouflaged 
like a dragon, and the freshman float with a 
horse drawn carriage. Both the Asian- 
American Club and the French Club showed, 
as senior princess Jeannine Myles stated, "a 
lot of cultural diversity... the floats are ex- 
emplifying a cultural heritage." 

The parade began with the U.S. Marine 
Corps Color Guard. President Luther 
Luedtke and his wife followed as the Grand 
Marshall. Dean Ronald Kragthorpe and his 
wife were also in the parade, recognizing 
his 20-year service to the university. 
The Homecoming court was also present,

Kristine Strand was named home- 
coming queen at the Oct. 16 coro- 
nation ceremoney in the gym 

following each class' float. The pep band 
played, and the cheerleaders yelled enthusi- 
astically, which raised the anticipation of 
the crowd to see the king and queen. 

Reactions to the parade varied, but were 
generally positive.'Tm quite pleased with 
it," said sophomore Allison Pilmer, one of 
the coordinators of the event. Dr. Tiemey, 
of the philosophy department, said that it 
was "utterly charming. "But perhaps Dr. 
Luedtke summed it up best with his reac- 
tion, "Terrific, beautiful, joyous, only a 
little bit off the wall. It had everything but 
the debris that's left behind the horses."

Schuldheisz kick gives Kingsmen 
overtime win against Occidental 

By Gretchen Gies 


The 1992 Homecoming Kingsmen 
football match-up against the Occiden- 
tal Tigers entertained a large crowd of 
2,35 1 fans with another infamously close 
game. But this time, CLU proved to be 
"king of the mountain" by a Ben 
Schuldheisz field goal in overtime to 
win the game 17-14. 

Linebacker Coach Bryan Marmion 
said . "We really needed to win one in the 
last seconds of the game for morale." 

Quality defensive play led up to the 
overtime period. Offensive Line Coach 
Scott Squires explained, "It's no ques- 
tion the defense won the ball game." 

Defensive Coordinator Kyle 
Tarpenning agreed that defensively the 
Kingsmen played particularly well. The 
Tigers created most of the havoc in the 
first quarter with successful quarterback 
option plays for a large amount of yard- 
age and an early seven points to match 
the first Kingsmen score. 
Tarpenning explained that the defense 

was successful in slowing the play to create 
indecisiveness. The Tigers were forced to 
pilch but a Kingsman pitch man was there 
to stop the ball carrier. 

"Our biggest contribution was that we 
played as a unit from the second quarter 
on." said Tarpening. 

Reliable Kingsmen players such as Pete 
Pistone, Chris Sestito, Pete Leao, Tom 
Pelligrino, and Cory Undlin dealt high pres- 
sure and tight coverage throughout the 

Turnovers were key turning points. De- 
fensive backs Leao and Undlin shined with 
big quaterback sacks, fumble recoveries, 
and timely interceptions. 

Damaging the Kingsman effort were poor 
punt and kickoff returns by the special 

A few returns were fouled up by dropped 
catches and poor footing. 

Still, it was senior tailback Cassidy 
O'Sullivan and freshman Ivan Moreno who 
moved die Kingmen into scoring position. 
O'Sullivan gained 128 yards on 33 carries 
while Moreno rushed for 69 yards on just 
14 attempts. 

O'Sullivan scored the two touchdowns 
in the first and third quarters. 

For the most part the Kingsmen played 
conservatively by running the ball. How- 
ever, junior signal caller Adam Hacker 
tallied 185 yards completing 21 of 33 

Senior Len Bradly led the receivers with 
five receptions and 84 yards. Bradley 
brought the crowd to their feel with a 
spectacular 35-yardcaich down the middle 
in which he cut in between a pair of 
defenders to pull down the ball, setting up 
the tying 20-yard touchdown scamper by 

After referee and coach deliberation, the 
SCIAC game went into overtime. 

This overtime play, which is called the 
NCAA Tiebreaker rule, proved to be the 
highlight of the day. 

Freshman Schuldheisz drilled the up- 
rights for a game-winning 34-yard field 
goal to win the 29th Homecoming in CLU 

The Kingsmen improve its Homecom- 
ing record to 22-7 after winning its second 
consecutive Homecoming game.

tower near the Mountclef Ridge. Hundreds 
of nearby residents opposed it claiming thai 
the antenna would obstruct their view and 
interfere with their radio and television re- 

According to Timothy Schultz, CLU's 
broadcast engineer, the interference at the 
new location should not be a problem. "I 
can't even fathom we'd get any broadcast 
interference," he said. 

Members of the City Council told the CLU 
representatives that they appreciated the 
university's effort to move the tower. Lewis 
said, "I believe the community needs to sup- 
port the university." 

The council also voted to waive the fees for 
a Special Use Permit CLU needs. 

Representatives from CLU at the city coun- 
cil meeting included Provost and Dean of 
Academic Affairs James Halseth, Commu- 
nication Arts Chairman Art Lopez and Vice 
Only a handful of residents were at the meet- 
ing and no one opposed the pursuit of the 
tower's new location. 


Continued from page 1 

Many other activities were sponsored by 
Inter-Residence Hall Council. The theme 
of IRHC this year was alcohol awareness. 
Beginning the week's festivities were 
"mocktails" in the Student Union Building 
on Monday evening. As the name suggests, 
"mocktails" are cocktails in all but alcohol 
percentage. Strawberry daiquiris, Pina 
coladas, Fuzzy Navels, and Tequila Sun- 
rises (just "Sunrises" without the tequila) 
were prepared by members of IRHC and 
volunteers. Bartenders sported white T- 
shirts with the purple logo "Just Do It- Party 

Partygoers at the mocktail party could flit 
about from group to group, play pool or 
video games, or have a scat and enjoy their 
drink while munching on Chcctos, chips, 
and pretzels. At eight, groups dressed en- 
tirely in black materialized in the S UB for a 
hot game of Capture the Flag. Two groups- 
gold and purple-formed and the flags were 
handed out. The victor of the fame was the 
purple team. 

Tuesday night saw "Gutter Sundaes" in 
the SUB. Ice cream was to be placed in a 
gutter (yes, a drainpipe from a hardware 
store.) The gutter was unused and covered 
with plastic. Ideally, everyone in atten- 
dance would eat scoops of ice cream out of 
this gutter as a sort of team pig out. Unfor- 
tunately disposable bowls were discovered 
in the vicinity of the ice cream and the gutter 
idea collapsed as people preferred to have 
their own personal ice cream. 

Roughly twenty people were present for 
the presentation by Ventura County senior 
deputy coroner Greg Stevens on drinking 
and driving. 

This presentation consisted of slides of 
cars in various stages of destruction after 
drunk drivers were through with them . Fifty 

percent of all traffic accidents are caused by 
drunk drivers and ironically, the drunk is 
often not killed as they do not tense up just 
before impact In Ventura County there 
were seventy fatalities due to drunk driving 
in 1991. Many of the slides included im- 
ages of what occurs to the human body in 
a high speed impact and the terrible costs of 
drinking and driving. 

Attendance was high on Wednesday 
evening in the SUB. The evening's festivi- 
ties were sobriety testing of five CLU stu- 
dents. Jeff, Allie, Deke, Gabe, and Matt 
were given mixed drinks by Ventura County 
sheriffs and brought out one at a time in 
order to determine their apparent and actual 
levels of intoxication. Tests included the 
classic tip of finger to nose and walking of 
a straight line. They were also asked to 
stand with their heads back with their eyes 
closed. In mis position they estimated the 
passage of thirty seconds. They were also 
given breathalizer tests to determine blood 
alcohol percentage. 

Some interesting facts were shared by the 
sheriff. Drunk drivers drive very straight a 
lot of the time because they are concentrat- 
ing on following lines on the road. They 
also have the windows open and the radio 
on to stay awake. These are signals mat the 
police look for in drivers. The Ventura 
County sheriff department has seen a rise in 
drunk driving accidents in past years. There 
were 4 1 1 DUI (driving under the influence) 
arrests last year in Thousand Oaks. 

On Friday at ten a.m. a pep rally for 
Saturday's game took place on the football 
field. Present were the dance team, the 
cheerleaders, and the stunt team. Classes 
were divided into sections. Each class was 
given a large block of ice to melt in one 
contest. Sophomores won by smashing the 
block against the pavement. Volleyball 
coach Beth Welch spoke on the importance 
of support for the team. Matt Griffith, 
George Kuntz, and Coach Harper also spoke 
on the status of the cross country, soccer, 

and football teams. 

The cheerleaders and the stunt team per- 
formed a new stunt for the crowd. 
Chubby Bunny was the final game played. 
Representatives of each class placed as 
many as possible marshmallows in their 
mouths while saying "chubby bunny" as 
clearly as possible. 

A newly decorated cafeteria greeted the 
eyes of CLU students on Friday evening. 
Purple and gold streamers stretched along 
bannisters and the windows bore painted 
"Happy Homecoming" and "Kingsmen" 
signs. On each table were centerpieces with 
candies and balloons. 

A bright Saturday morning greeted pa- 
rade participants and spectators at eleven 
a.m. Along Memorial Parkway stretched 
decorated cars to represent every club and 
organization on campus from Women's 
Resource Center to United Students of the 
World. Winners of the float contest were 
announced during half lime of the football 
game. Third place went to the senior class 
with the theme of "A Royal Summons;" in 
second place was the drama club with a 
theme of fair damsels in distress and a 
"particularly nasty dragon;" LASO won 
first place with a theme of ancient royalty 
and temples. 

A picnic began in Kingsmen park began 
at noon for all students and alumni. 

California Lutheran vs. Occidental began 
atone in Ml. Clef Stadium. The Newbury 
Park band and performed at half time to the 
music from the movie Robin Hood. The 
game finished with an exciting overtime 
field goal. 

Homecoming dance, the last event of a 
busy week, took place in the gym at nine 
p.m. Over 800 balloons and hundreds of 
yards of streamers brought to life the utili- 
tarian walls. 

A huge video screen, which flashed pieces 
of videos through the night, stood next to 
the d.j. and his collection of music. Pictures 
were taken of each couple.

left my brain in San Francisco ... or somewhere 

Jay Ashkinos 
Opinion Wrtier 

/ left my brain in San Francisco ... or 
somewhere. All I know is that it is not 
inside my head. 

It was Friday. I was screaming 'TGIF' as 
loud as the next guy in exhileration of the 
fact that I reached the end of the week 
without making that many life-altering 
bonehead mistakes. 

Of course, I got a little too happy a little 
too soon. 

I wanted to wash myself clean of the 
week, so after a brief tango in the shower I 
decided to wash my car as well. Not just a 
soap and water type deal, the works. Only 

S5.95 at the local "Touchless" car washing 
establishment (I had a killer coupon). Some 
people actually wash their own car. Not me. 
No time. I'm a mover, a thinker. Always on 
the run, man. 

The scene was now set for me to begin my 
fool's folly. 

I ignited my car to the sounds of the 
Dependents and quickly backed out of my 
garage and right into the car behind me. 
WHAMMO! As the song "I'm Not a Loser" 
blared, I nodded my head, admitting that I 
really was. 

To amplify the situation, my car was just 
painted a month ago (Can you say irony?). 

No damage to the other car, though, so I 
took off, still on my quest to make it to the 
car wash, but not as confident as before. 

As I pulled into the car wash, the attendant 
tried to sell me some deluxe jobber for 

Water in a half-empty glass 

Lance T. Young 
Opinion Editor 

jn suggested that I try and write 
a **positive opinion." I'm not sure I under- 
stand what this encompasses. I'm not sure 
if I am capable of it. I envision myself 
silting at the computer for several hours in 
a row just trying to come up with a suitable 
topic. I imagine myself writing the article 
with a smile on my face and whistling 
Disney show tunes, churning out page after 
page of sing-song rhyme in the form of 
heroic couplets using words such as "swell" 
and "sunshine," and phrases like "reality is 
what you make it" and "love can conquer 
all." ' 

I'm not the material optimists are made 
of. Even when I think of something in 
positive terms, I realize the potential for 
improvement Take for example a book. I 
may love the book, but that does not mean 
I will write an opinion about how wonder- 
ful the book was. I will write about why the 
book was not perfect and how the book 
could have been written better. In short, the 
positive elements of life speak for them- 
selves — it is the negative, the things and 
systems and concepts that fall short of their 
potential that need to be written about. 

I'm wary of using the terms optimist and 
pessimisi (even though I did use the word 
in me last paragraph — and only because u 

j term that most people arc comfortable 
with). It's too easy to lumpand pigeonh' 
all the people who are living mio two 
groups. But people are existing and 
sponding to the reality around them in 
individual ways based on their own unique 

memories, perceptions and ideals. 

Is it necessarily "wrong" to depict the 
negative side of an issue or should we just 
ignore it and join hands, think really happy 
thoughts and hope that it goes away? In 
short, I respond to the environment around 

It seems that in many ways "pessimists" 
(the generalization again) are viewed in a 
belittling manner. In truth, they are the ones 
who see that things could be better and that 
everything is not peaches, sunshine and 
yellow brick roads as far as the eye can see. 

... if I wanted to write in a 

perpetually positive and happy 
manner, I'd get a job with 
Hallmark and pen deeply mov- 
ing and joyous words on the 
front of greeting cards. 

People say "Gee, can't you look on the 
positive side of things?" I do. I see that side 
and as I said before, it speaks for itself. My 
concern lies in depicting what is wrong with 
things — if I wanted to write in a perpetu- 
ally positive and happy manner, I'd get a 
job with Hallmark and pen deeply moving 
and joyous words on the front of greeting 
cards. But just to satisfy those happy souls 
who suggested I should write something 
positive here it is: 

I like Christmas and my dog. I think they 
are both pretty neat (although Christmas 
where I live is too cold and 1 wish my dog 
would learn to not drool on the kitchen floor 
— mere 1 go again, sorry.) Excuse me now 
while 1 go home and drink some water from 
my glass that is half-empi 

something like S29.95. 

"Is this one of those female topless 
places?" I asked. 

"No," he said. 

"Regular wash please," I returned. 
I went inside to pay the cashier who 
happened to be a guy I graduated high 
school with; someone I was hoping wouldn't 
notice me. Of course, he did. 

"Man your hair got long!" he said. 

I ignored him. I was too busy noticing an 
elderly man attempt to go from one end of 
the room to the other. I didn't think he'd 
ever make it You could get through a CLU 
registration line more quickly. 

Just then someone shouted "Who's the 
rocket scientist who locked their keys in the 

I didn't have to look. I knew it was me. 

In a matter of seconds, every employee of 
the car wash; all of whom were self-pro- 
claimed experts at getting into locked cars 
(It's good to know we have these types of 
people in our community), was attempting 
to unlock my car. One of them actually had 
a book on the subject But all to no avail. My 
car stumped them. That was both a good 
thing and a bad thing. 

I had to call home for my spare. On the

eighth ring my brother picked up the phone. 
Half awake and pretty angry for having to 
get up to get the phone, he blew me off and 
hung up (Ah, family. They're always there 
for you). 

Then a good thing happened. One of the 
guys at the car wash offered me a lift home 
to pick up my spare. Wow! Life does have 
meaning after all. On the way to my house, 
we engaged in polite small talk: 

"So, do you go to high school around 
here?" he asked. 

"No. I go to CLU," I answered, feeling 
pretty bad that he thought I was under 18. 

"Do you have a girlfriend?" he asked. 

"What do you think?" I snotuly returned. 

"Oh. Sorry," he said. 

Now feeling pretty low, I decided to ask a 
question or two. 

"Do you have to drive people home like 
this all the time?" I questioned. 

"We get a few stupid. ..I mean, not that 
you're.. .urn... yeah, Iguess so," he wasquick 
to cover up. 

"Is this your car?" I quickly asked. 

"Station car," he answered. 

I was surprised that a car wash would have 
a company car, especially one equipped 
with a radar detector. We finally reached 
my place. I was pretty sure he was copying 
my address as I went to fetch my key. 

All the way back to the station, I won- 
dered whether or not I was supposed to give 
him a tip. I didn't (Was I wrong?). 

Everyone was pointing at me as I retrived 
my locked keys and my car was sent off to 
the hosing barn. All except for the old guy, 
who was still trying to get to the other side 
of the building. The employees were still 
making up for the fact that they couldn't 
break into my car (At this point, of course, 
I was glad they couldn't). 

Anyway, a five-minute car wash turned 
into a 90-minute extravaganza. That 
bummed me, for I had missed the 
"Flintsones" because of it. 

Hats off to the car wash people, though. 
They turned an embarrassing situation into 
an interesting embarrassing situation. They 
forgot to vacuum my trunk (I didn't com- 
plain. I'd already caused enough trouble). 

I needed to stop at the store to get some Dr 
Peppers to cheer my self up. After wailing in 
line for eternity (A billion check-stands and 
only one is open) they ring up my stuff and 
I discovered that I had left my wallet in the 
car ... along with my brain. 

Staff Opinion 

Health care has mom's touch 

They're at it again. The "higher-ups" of CLU have called another secret meeting 
behind our backs. What kind of meeting you ask? It wasn't a meeting of the 
Regent's todiscuss the alcohol policy, oramectingoftheadministratorstodiscuss 
disciplinary tactics for students, or even a meeting of the members of Senate to talk 
about more budget cuts. 

No, this was a much more important meeting — it was a meeting of the most 
powerful faction of people in college student's young lives: our moms. 

Somehow, someway, they've secretly come together, bypassing the usual CLU 
requirements of red tape and bureaucracy, and have managed to show that their 
arsenal of motherly love knows no boundaries. "Mominators," if you will. 

Why do we say this? And what have they done? The answer to these questions 
is simple, if you've visited Health Services lately. There you will find what every 
mom wants for their kid while they're away at school: a person like Beverly 

Don't believe it? Ask the guy who's continually falling off his skateboard or his 
bike, or the athletes who want to see the oihcr doctor, or the students who can't 
quite remember when, if ever, they had their last measles shot. 

Still unconvinced? Ask anyone who's been lucky enough to catch that one 
stupid cold that everyone they know has had, or the coundess upperclassmcn who 
are experiencing their first case of "scniorilis" and need that quick and easy fix: 
someone to talk to. 

Kemmerling, in the short time she's been here, has proven to be a true friend to 
Students, not just someone using her position to intimidate or persuade like many 
others who arc supposed to be in a "helping" role. 

And so, what should we say about this secret meeting stuff? 

Thanks, Mom. And thanks, Beverly Kemmerling. 

SNL editorial 
was pointless 

During one of my few breaks between 
classes Tuesday morning, I decided to 
relax and read the Echo. It's always nice 
to take time out, read some interesting 
articles, and find out what's up here at 
California Lutheran University. This par- 
ticular morning, however, I was thrown 
for quite a loop. 

After laughing at Jay Ashkinos' edito- 
rial I continued on to an article written by 
Jeanne Carlston. It started out fine. "An 
article about Saturday Night Live - how 
hip, how topical! Just when I thought it 
was safe, though, she left me in total 

Now try to understand, early morning is 
generally not the time I reach my intellec- 
tual peak - in fact, I'm usually struggling 


to stay awake. So, after reading the article 
and finding absolutely no point, I did what 
anyone else would do, I blamed myself. 
But after reading it again I realized there 
really was no point. What a cruel trick to 
play on someone! 

She started out saying, "I can honestly 
say the whole show was disturbing be- 
cause Tim Robbins was the host." So 
that's what the article is about right? No. 
She went on to say, "What was even 
more disturbing . . . was the musical guest 
Sinead O'Connor." That's all right - she 
was still talking about SNL. I can deal 
with that But then she started talking 
about how problem-free the United States 
is (I should write another letter about that). 
Then, if mat didn't leave me far enough 

back in the dust, she starts rambling on 
about how there is nothing to die for. 

"But these days there are no crusades to 
run out in join in this coutnry of lazy souls 
who just think that by voting they're doing 
the right thing." 

What? Did I miss something? That sen- 
tence doesn't even make sense! And what 
happened to Tim Robbins? She even man- 
aged to throw in something about abortion. 
Just a couple of tips: when writing an ar- 
ticle, have a point and if you have several 
ideas, tie diem together. 

Does anyone read these articles before 
they're printed? I have enough problems in 
the morning without dying to make sense 
out of something totally pointless.

Family members are victims of Bosnia horror 

I am writing you this letter to tell you 
what has happened to my family members 
in Bosnia and Hercegovina. I would like 
to say Asalamu Alakum and hello. I would 
also like to thank each and everyone of 
you for taking time out to read this. 

What is going on in Bosnia and 
Hercegovina is a huge tragedy to human- 
ity. Ethnic cleansing and genocide oc- 
curred and is still occurring to the Muslim 
and Catholic people of Bosnia and 
Hercegovina. The concentration camps 
are reminiscent of what Hitler did to the 
Jewish people during World War II. The 
world communities should of never let it 
happen then, and it most definitely should 
tofnever of happened again to the people 

of Bosnia and Hercegovina in 1992. 

On July 20, 1992 17 and more of my 
family members were taken out of their 
homes by the Serbian Communist army and 
the Chetniks. They were killed by the Serbs. 
Some of them were tortured and mutilated 
to death. My grandfather and two uncles 
were killed. My mothers cousin Soljo was 
tortured to death. His eyes were taken out 
while he was still alive, he was cut open, and 
his body parts were cut off. He was found in 
the basement of his brother's house. The 
rest of the men were found in a pile behind 
Soljo's house. The men mat they did not kill 
they put in concentration camps, the very 
ones you saw on TV a few months ago. The 
women, children, and die elderly were also 

put into concentration camps. Not one hu- 
man being deserves to die the way, many 
thousands of people did in Bosnia and 
Hercegovnia or to be treated worse than 
animals in the concentration camps. No 
matter what religion, what ethnic group, or 
what race a person is. The ethnic cleansing, 
genocide and the war must be stopped in 
Bosnia and Hercegovina. 

We must work together asjiuman beings 
to STOP ALL human injustices. Each and 
every human being is created equally in the 
eyes of God, and there for we must work 
together and help one another to live in 
peace and to stop human injustices around 
the world.

Club promotes 
school spirit at 
sporting events 

I'm writing to you to introduce myself, 
and tell a little about a new club here on 

My name is Carolyn West and I am the 
new president of the Pep Club. This is the 
first year we decided to have a club in 
cooperation with the pep athletic commis- 
sioner, cheerleaders, and to all students 
who want to participate. 

The Pep Club is here to promote all sports 
teams, school spirit and alternate attending 
all sporting events. The Pep Club also 
holds weekly meetings in which the execu- 
tive cabinet and members keeps track of all 
games attendance, projects and keeps track 
of the budget. 

The members help set up posters and 
fliers about upcoming events as well as 
help lead cheers to get the crowds 
motivated.The members also support the 
cheerleaders and help them where help is 

The Pep Club meets every Wednesday 
night at 8 p.m. in the Student Union Build- 

My other executive cabinet leaders are: 
Pep Athletic Commissioner Michelle 
Milius, Treasurer Linda Akers and Secre- 
tary Celena Alcalla. Unfortunately, the club 
does not have a vice president and I am 
looking for an active, creative, outgoing 
student who will help me run the Pep Club 
with my other leaders. 

If anyone is interested please contact me

Playwright discusses South Pacific 
literature, will open play Oct. 22 

By Michelle Lea 


An individual's identity, culture, tradi- 
tions and love for the land were all relevant 
issues brought to life by Larry Thomas, 
artist-in-residence at CLU, in his lecture, 
"An Introduction to the Literature of the 
Pacific" Oct. 8 in the Pearson Library. 

In his lecture, which began this year's 
Humanities Colloquium, Thomas said the 
South Pacific is a vast area, including parts 
of Asia, Russia, and North and South 
America. He therefore limited his focus to 
the islands only, among them Fiji and the 
Solomon Islands. 

'The strength of the Pacific," says Tho- 
mas, "lies in its culture, its art and its 
literature." Short stories and the poetry of 
the South Pacific expresses the friendship 
and respect the islanders feel for the land, 
which is their life and blood. The literature 
of this island is based on and grew from the 
oral tradition, with the written form being 
relatively new. These stories are filled 
with myths and legends allowing the is- 
landers to hang onto the past because it is 
a "part of their culture and identity," Tho- 
mas said. 
Stories of South Pacific culture tell the 

Morten to make 
his debut in 
choir, orchestra 
concert Nov. 1 

Symphony No. 99 by Hayden and choral 
works by Luther, Schultz, Hovland and F. 
Melius Christiansen will be performed by 
CLU's Choir and Orchestra in their first 
concert under the direction of CLU's new 
choral director, Dr. Wyant Morion, and 
associate professor of music, Dr. Daniel 

The concert will be held on Sunday, Nov. 
1, at 4 p.m. in the the Samuelson Chapel. 

Morten, who succeeds Dr. James Fritschel 
who retired last May, was appointed assis- 
tant professor of music at CLU. 

He earned his doctorate in May 1992 
from the University of Arizona, where he 
directed the Male Chorus, the Recital Choir 
and the Contemporary Choir. While in Tuc- 
son (1989-92) he also administered the 
church music program for Our Saviour's 
Lutheran Church, a 2,200-member congre- 
gation that featured nine choirs. In 1989 he 
was the assisiant conductor for the Arizona 
Opera Company's production of Gounod s 

formation of the land, animals and the 
people. In the late 1950s and '60s, he said, 
young writers traveled to obtain their edu- 
cation and upon returning to the islands 
wrote with great vigor of the anger, sup- 
pression and condescension regarding the 
colonial power, exploitation of people and 
land in the island states. These young writ- 
ers had the confidence to express them- 
selves and courageously write of the forces 
the white hierarchy had condemned to the 
The current situation regarding the litera- 
ture of the South Pacific is one of resur- 
gence. Issues expressed now are those of 
social and political realms versus the post- 
independence ideas of the 1950s and '60s. 
In the 1970s, young authors were very 
vibrant and prolific in their works as they 
expresses concerns and validity regarding 
Fiji's independence, which was achieved 
in 1970. 

The 1980s saw a decrease in the number 
of writers while the 1990s show a strong 
reprise of literature symbolic to the struggles 
and character of the South Pacific. The 
ideas relevant to this form of literature have 
changed from post-independence to more 
social and political issues. 
Thomas was born in Suva, Fiji, and stud- 

ied at the University of Canberra, Austra- 
lia. He has produced and directed plays in 
Fiji, and a collection of his plays have been 
published by the University Press of the 
University of the South Pacific. 

Thomas' play "Men, Women and Insan- 
ity," will be produced at CLU as his first 
work performed outside of Fiji. The play 
opens Oct. 22 and runs through Oct. 25. 

Performances are Thursday through Sat- 
urday at 8 p.m., with a matinee on Sunday 
at 2 p.m. All performances will be held in 
CLU's Little Theatre.The play deals with 
the many issues which cross national bor- 
ders: sexism, racism, education and reli-

Big band bounces back on O'Connor's latest 

By Micah Reitan 


Sinead O'Connor 

Sinead O'Connor's new disc, "Am I Not 
Your Girl?" sounds more like a Harry 
Connick Jr. or an old Frank "Blue Eyes" 
Sinatra LP. The Big Band sound bounces 
back big, brightly and beautifully on the 
superstar from Ireland's latest 

O'Connor recreates 1 1 classic stage and 
sceen tunes from the mid-century (the Big 
Band-era). This LP offers some straightfor- 
ward Big Band material with songs like, 
"Why Don't You Do Right?" and Doris 
Day's "Secret Love," (from the movie mu- 
sical "Calamity Jane"). These songs show- 
cased the homs session, allowing them to 
shine. It also lets the drums accent off-beats 
with strong snare snaps and cymbal crashes. 

But maybe most surprising and impres- 
sive, it gives O'Connor a chance to vocally 
showcase a strong firm voice. 

This LP also offers some relaxed "wind 
down" show tune such as "Don'tCry for me 
Argentina," (written by Andrew Lloyd 
Webber, songwriter of "Phantom of the 
Opera" and "Jesus Christ Superstar"), "Be- 
witched, Bothered and Bewildered," and 
"Gloomy Sunday." These songs let 
O'Connor come back with her softer, more 
gentle and sensitive voice. 

I'm really surprised and impressed with 
this disc. Her voice has really improved. It 
fits well on these big band show and screen 
tunes. This disc is much better than her 
1990 disc, "I Do Not Want What I Haven't 
Got," which featured the hit "Nothing Com- 
pares 2 U." 

REASON TO BUY: Personally, I love 
Big Band music. I think it's great. More 
power to any artist who dares try it. Con- 
tinual success to those who can pull it off. 
O'Connor shockingly pulls it off. Plus, the 
songs are already classics. 
REASON TO CRY: It seems the songs 
are set in two speeds. There's fast and slow. 
It's a black-and-white album. Though I 
liked O'Connor's voice on this one, I'm 
sure there are a few other females who'd 
have done a belter job with this (No, Ma- 
donna isn't one of them). 
THE FINAL WORDS: Give the disc a 
listen. If you like Harry Connick Jr.. Frank 
Sinatra-type tunes grab it. Let it take you 
back into the days of Jerry Lewis. Let your 
imagination glide across the dance floor. 
Why not?

CLU improves to 2-3 overall and 2-1 in SCI AC play. See football story in the 
Homecoming pull-out section. 


Overall Record: 10-3-2

Division III Ranking: #23 (As of October 12) 

Last Week's Results: CLU def. Pomona-Pitzer 2-1; CLU def. Claremont- 

Mudd-Scripps 1-0 

It was a huge win for the Kingsmen Saturday, as they knocked off Claremont, 

#7 in Division III, and the top team in the Far West Region on a penalty kick 

by Dave Eshelman. The penalty kick was called after Claremont goalkeeper 

Tyler Snow was called for a foul in the box, and Eshelman put the kick in the 

left corner of the net. The first half was dominated by the Kingsmen, while 

the second half belonged to the Stags, who put a lot of pressure on the 

defense, especially goalkeeper Josh Green. However, Green responded with 

four saves, including one at the end of the match. He recorded his sixth win 

of the season, all by shutouts. With the win, the Kingsmen have either tied or 

beaten the top two teams in the region, which should impress the playoff 

committee when it comes time to pick the participants later this month. 

The statistics after 15 matches show forwards Willie Ruiz and Keir Cochran, 

who was injured early in the match with Claremont, tied for the team lead in 

goals (8) and points (20).

Lowered fee 
hike passes 
first stage 

By Charlie Flora 


After encountering some harsh reactions 
and then finding out student fees were 
changed since 1984, ASCLU President Ja- 
son Russell altered his proposed 33 percent 
student fee increase to a 17 percent hike. 

The Student Life Committee, made up of 
five regents including Russell, unanimously 
approved the proposition in a preliminary 
move at its Oct. 23 meeting. The matter was 
then discussed with the Board of Regents 
during Founder's Day Convocation on Ocl 
24 and the response was mostly positive, 
Russell said, as some regents said they were 
ready to vote on the matter at the fall meet- 

But the final decision on the increase, 
from S75 to $90 per semester or SI 50 to 
S180 per year for all full-time undergradu- 
ate students, will be made at the regents' 
Febuary budget meeting and if passed will 
go into effect starting with the 1 993-94 aca- 
demic year. The proposal also includes rais- 
ing student fees by $10 every four years 
starting with the 1998-99 year. 

"The reason for the change came when 1 
realized fees had changed in 1987," Russell 
said. "I had gone on the assumption of what 
Dean Kragthorpe told me (that fees hadn't 
been increased since 1984). So when I found 
out that fees had been raised, I decided to 
lower the increase." 

After a previous article in the paper stat- 
ing Russell's original intent, the Student 
Body President found out — many times 
directly, other times word of mouth — that 
there were more than a few students dis- 
pleased with such a severe proposition. 

"(The change in increase) was also out of 
compromise," he added. "Some thought 
that it was too much of an increase at one 

Although most regents are thought to be 
fond of the student fee increase, Russell 
said, there was also some opposition at the 
meeting. CLU President Luther Luedtke 
was one of the first to ask questions of the 
proposal . However, the president was out of 
town this weekend and could not be reached 
for comment. Also outlined in Russell's 
six-page proposal was a new method of

Clinton wins campus vote; education, 
economy top issues in mock election 


Bill Clinton 

Democrat gets 49 votes 
from CLU, 50% from 
400 other colleges 


Ross Perot 

By Laryssa Kreiselmeyer 


If CLU voters in a mock election are 
any indication, Democratic candidate Bill 
Clinton will be elected president Nov. 3. 
CLU was one of 400 schools that hosted 
the election, which took place in the cam- 
pus bookstore October 21. One hundred 
and three CLU students voted for president 

and ranked the importance of issues in this 
election year. Clinton won the election on 
the CLU campus with a count of 49 votes. 
Current President George Bush received 
36 and independent candidate Ross Perot 
received 18 votes. 

The three issues CLU students felt were 
most important were education and 
economy. Womens' issues and environ- 
ment were near the bottom of the list. 

Clinton won the majority vote of 40, 698 
college students surveyed with a 50 percent 
vote. Bush and Perot followed with 29 and 


George Bush 

21 percent respectively. 
CLU student reaction was varied. 
Sophomore Ashley Young, a member of 
the Republican club on campus, says that 
Clinton's victory in all the surveys and 
polls meant very little. 

"Bush will win," Young said. "The 
people are not ready for the changes that 
Clinton will bring." 

Young feels that people who lean a bit 
towards Clinton or are undecided will 
choose Bush on election day. She also

Fights mar 'bash' ; 1 2 police cars called 

By Kristin Butler 


Police officers were called in for the sec- 
ond year in a row to break up a series of 
fights involving CLU students at an off 
campus Halloween party Oct. 29. The party 
and dance, tabbed "Monster Bash," was held 
at the Sunset Hills Country Club and put on 
by CLU senior Ron Jensen. 

Although not nearly as dramatic as last 
year's "Hyatt Riot." in which two CLU 
students were arrested on charges of sub- 
stance abuse and refusal to disperse at the 
Halloween party at the Hyatt Westlake Plaza 
hotel, the Thousand Oaks police depart- 
ment did send 12 cars to the club this year 
to "restore order and clear everyone out," 
according to one officer. 

Party attendance for the October 29 party 
was estimated at over 300 students, prima- 

rily from CLU. 

"What this spoils for CLU students is that 
there will never be another opportunity for 
any CLU functions of any type to be held 
here again," said Jan Morrowbell, director 
of food and beverages at Sunset Hills. "It's 
un fortunate because a few bad apples spoiled 
it for the whole lot." 

This was the second year in a row for the 
Sunset Hills Monster Bash. Last year's 
party, according to Jensen, "went smoothly, 
but there were less people than this year." 
"It's kind of odd, because the fighting 
started at 12:30, and by then it was basically 

over," said Jensen, who paid an approxi- 
mate $200 in damages to Sunset Hills. "It's 
unfortunate because that money was sup- 
posed to go to charity, and now there's 
going to be a lot less. 

Damages included a broken table, and 
broken glass on some pictures. 

Child Help, an organization that is part of 
the City of Hope foundation, was the cho- 
sen charity for the proceeds from the bash. 
Jensen explained that the donation will be 
given basically as one from Sunset Hills, in 
return for a reduced rental rate he was given

Bishop, Christus Award, highlights of CLU's 
33rd annual Founders Day Convocation 

By Katie Payne 


Bishop Herbert Chilstrom 

The 33rd annual Founders Day Convo- 
cation on Oct. 23 was highlighted by an 
address given by the Rev. Dr. Herbert 
Chilstrom in the Samuelson Chapel. 

Chilstrom is the Bishop of the Evangeli- 
cal Lutheran Church in America. He is also 
an author and a pastor who holds nine 
honorary degrees. 

Chilstrom spoke on "The Interaction of 
Faith and Learning." He also focused on 

what the cross represents. The vertical part 
is the gift received and the horizontal sec- 
tion is "the gift to be given away," Chilstrom 
said. He ended his address by saying, "Life 
is a gift received and a gift to be given." 

William T. Mooney, the chair of CLU 
Convocation , presented this year's Christus 
Award to Diane M. Nelson. Nelson is the 
director of Auxiliary California Lutheran 
Homes. She received a trophy that is a 
replica of a larger trophy that will remain at 
the university. 

The Christus Award is given annually 
during Convocation. Itwas awarded this 
year in honor of contributions to improving 
the bridge between the church and CLU. 

This year's Convocation was attended by 
the Convocators, most of whom represent 
Hawaii, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, New 
Mexico, California, Nevada, Colorado and 
EI Paso, Texas. The rest of the convocators 
included CLU students, faculty, members 
of the community and county representa- 

Multimedia Network Project begins; 
faculty computer installation next step 

By Eric Rutlin 


The fust phase in the Multimedia Net- 
work Project began on Oct. 19 with the go- 
ahead of the installation of about 115 new 
computers for faculty and staff members. 

The proposed network of computers 
would give personal access to an IBM 
compatible or Apple Macintosh computer 
for all part-time and full-time faculty who 
requested one in early October. 

"Some faculty are receiving 'recycled 
Macintosh Classics' that didn't fall into 
part-time status," says Julius Bianchi, the 
director of Academic Computing. 
IBM received the project of setting up 70 
IBM PS/2 486s for those requesting IBM 
compatible computers. 

A committee decided which business 
would get the job. 

"We didn't pick the cheapest," Bianchi 
says. "We chose the one which gave us a 
decent price, good support and a lot of 
other extras. It was not an easy decision." 

Apple is expected to fill the order of 45 
Macintoshes by the end of November. The 
order included a variety of models, includ- 

ing the Classic II, LC II, Ilsi and the 

Bianchi expects the PS/2s to be installed 
by the second semester. Twenty of these 
will be set up in various computer labs 
around campus. 

Setting up the actual network for all these 
computers is a project that is expected to 
take three months. 

"We are waiting for someone to commit 
to the laying of the fiber-optic cabling around 
campus," admits Bianchi. 

The Multimedia Network Project is the 
effort by CLU to update the campus to 
current technology. It will eventually con- 
neci ail computers, including those in dorms, 
to a main server for access to library files 
and electronic mail. 

Faculty training will follow the installa- 
tion of the computers. It will include work- 
shops on productivity, telecommunications 
and multimedia. Other areas of instruction 
include seminars, software demonstrations 
and on-site training. 

The next phase is to set up an Internet 
connection. This is a network of more than 
500,000 computers internationally, where 
a person can access information from all 
over the world. 

Senate opts for used table; 
campus vandalism discussed 

By Amy Anderson 


The new pool table destined for the SUB 
will make its debut on Nov. 5. The table 
was purchased by the ASCLU senate from 
a family that lives in Upland. The cost of 
the table is $700 and the delivery cost is 
$300 according to ASCLU Vice President 
Kristine Strand. The CLU Guild will con- 
tribute $500 to the purchase. 

In other Senate nevvs: 

Recent vandalism on campus was dis- 
cussed at the Oct. 28 meeting. A campus 
map and an outdoor display case was dam- 
aged. ASCLU President Jason Russell sug- 
gested that if a student does notice any 
destruction, it should be reported to Facili- 

Dr. Iverson attended the Senate meeting 
representing the Student Life Committee 
to try to gain the help of the Senate in 
organizing a co-curricular recognition day 
on Dec. 7 in order to have a celebration for 
all of the students involved in co-curricu- 
lar activities during the fall semester. A 
meeting to discuss this evening will take 
place on Nov. 2 at 1 1:30 a.m. in Regents 

Echo Editor-in-Chief Charlie Flora ap- 
proached the Senate with a proposal to 
obtain two new computers for the Echo 
office. The senate approved approximately 
$3,300 to be taken out of Capital Expendi- 
tures account for the purchase and the 
remaining cost will be paid for through 
Echo advertising revenue. 

The CLU stunt team received half of 
their proposed $117 for the purchase of 
new uniforms after some debate. 

Various clubs on campus were intro- 
duced at the meetings,. Those present in- 
cluded the Pep Club President Carolyn 
West, United Students of the World mem- 
ber Mercedes Ruiz, and three members of 
the Drama club. 

A craft fair is in the works of making its 
way to CLU during the week of Dec. 6. 
Ten percent of the profits will go to the 
ASCLU Senate, said Strands

Students, Campus Ministry discuss tragedy of Yugoslavia 

By Joel Ervice 


Three CLU students from the war torn 
area of Yugoslavia spoke to a crowded 
audience at a classroom in Samuelson 
Chapel Oct. 21. Juniors Tomislav 
Zelenovic, Aida Hamulic and freshman 
Kristina Medic provided different aspects 
to the troubled region. 

The presentation was a continuation of 

Campus Ministry's "Global World Update" 


Zelenovic discussed the history of the 
region, saying the source of the problems 
began back in the fifth century, when Slavs 
inhabited Yugoslavia. Many spoke differ- 
ent languages, yet they shared the same 
culture and intermingled often. 

Trouble arose, however, in 1054 A.D. 
when the Christian church split into two 
factions; theCatholic Church based in Rome, 

Bulgarian history complex, 
CLU student tells audience 

By Stacey Pay 


The Global Peace and Justice Committee 
of the Lord of Life Congregation spon- 
sored the third lecture in a part series of 
Global Updates, Oct. 28. This week's topic 
focused on Bulgaria. 

Boyan Trandev, a native of Bulgaria, 
spoke about the history of Bulgaria, and the 
five main stages the nation endured. 

Bulgaria originated in 681, which is 
deemed the beginning of the first empire; 
this lasted until 1018. At this time, Bulgar- 
ians had no "cultural consciousness" of 
themselves as a nation. 

The second empire, from 1185-1393, 
mirrored that of the first, where little change 
occured, and the Bulgarians still lacked 
sense of cultural identity. 

From 1393-1878 however, the worst pe- 
riod in the Bulgarian history took place. 
Turks entering from Asia conquered Bul- 
garia in its entirety. Bulgarians, who al- 
ready lacked identity, were forced into the 
Muslim faith, stripped of their individual 
freedoms, and treated like animals. 

Luckily, a man by the name of Levski 
initiated the idea of a revolution, and in 

1866, Bulgaria fought the Turks. This was 
the first in a series of wars Bulgaria fought 
during its history; the Balkan wars, and 
several minor civil wars plague Bulgaria's 

By the mid-20th century, Bulgaria had 
reclaimed the land that once was declared 
Turkish. Yet, by 1944, the Soviet army 
entered Bulgaria, and conquered it again. 
This period of history, from 1944-1960 was 
another nightmare for the Bulgarians. A 
common occurence in the culture was the 
"people's court," which provided no de- 
fense for the accused. 

During this time period, the native Bul- 
garians were treated much like the Jews 
were under the Nazis. Communistrule flour- 
ished in Bulgaria, and hundreds of thou- 
sands of people died. 
By 1989, the communist rule died out, and 

Bulgaria was. finally ruled by democratic 
forces. Bulgaria now has 42 political par- 
ties, and three major elections have been 
held since 1989. 

According to Trandev, the major problem 
in Bulgaria today is the nationalist move- 
ment. In addition, the nation holds a $12 
billion debt, which can only be solved within 

the nation itself. 

and the Eastern Orthodox Church in Istanbul, 
leaving hostile feelings on both sides. 

Turks later invaded Yugoslavia, install- 
ing a large Muslim sect into the population. 
Besides the deep rooted religious differ- 
ences, there was, and still is today, contro- 
versy over property ownership. 

World Wars I and II brought deep nation- 
alistic movements to both Croatia and Serbia. 
Zelenovic stated that Hitler in World War II 
kept the fractions of Yugoslavia fighting 
each other, even though the diverse popu- 
lous had the same goals. 
A great socialist movement also ignited in 
Yugoslavia, under the reign of Tito. 
Zelenovic believes this is were today 's prob- 
lems begin. "It was time to pay the bills, and 
everyone blamed everyone else. They're 
just all being paranoid," he said explaining 
that the factions of Muslims, Greek Ortho- 
dox, and Catholics cannot resolve their dif- 
ferences of religious history. 

"You don't know who is fighting who," 
Hamulic spoke for 15 minutes, beginning 
with a story about her family in a town in 
Yugoslavia. All of the men in the town were 
lined up behind a house and shot. Her two 
uncles were tortured, one had his eyes re- 
moved while he was still alive. 

Hamulic blames "the Serbian communist 
government and their soldiers." She does 
not, however, blame the people of the coun- 
try, saying that there was 40 to 45 years of 

"love, goodness," before the fighting be- 

"We have to work together. We have to 
help each other. It doesn't matter if you're 
Muslim, Catholic." Hamulic was pleased 
the United Nations peace keeping force was 
there, but she doesn't "really know what 
can be done," to stop the fighting. 

Medic was the last to speak, placing great 
emphasis on the fact she was raised Yugo- 
slavian, not Croatian or Serbian or one of 
the other numerous groups in the country. 

Medic expressed concern that the press 
had been placing too much blame for the 
horrendous acts on Serbia, whereas some of 
Croatia's acts have been just as bad. She 
stated that Croatia has concentration camps, 
and has failed torecognize the largeamounts 
of Serbians in the area. As an example, she 
stated that more than 50,000 children were 
killed in Croatia, and the Croatian govern- 
ment re-named any Serbian names. 

She doesn't understand "why the media 
didn't let it be known," that a year ago the 
Red Cross discovered a Croatian concen- 
tration camp, the type that is most com- 
monly associated with Serbia. 

All three speakers agreed that only the 
United Nations peace keeping force and 
humanitarian aid should be offered to any- 
one in Yugoslavia. 

"I believe any change will be slow. They 
have to figure it out by themselves," 
Zelenovic stated.

distribution for the student fee money used 
by the university and Senate. Russell is 
proposing that two percent be transferred 
out of the Capital Expenditures (the ac- 
count for improving campus stuc lures) and 
Artist/Lecture (an account which is used 
for funding speakers on campus and in- 
creasing the diversity of the university) so 
the money will go back into the ASCLU 
account. In his proposal, Russell specified 
his reason for the changes. 
Regarding the Artist/Lecture change: 
"The university has been on a campaign 
to increase diversity among the student 
body." Russell wrote. "With this diversity 
also comes a responsibility on behalf of the 
university to create new programs along 
with maintaining them once they are in 
place. In the past few years student senate 
covered a good amount of the cost to main- 
tain activities such as Encuentros and Black 
History Week; two events we should be 

contributing to. But we also feel that it is 
time the university took more of a financial 
responsibility towards the maintaining of 
these and other such events. There is a price 
to be paid to have 
a well diversified 
student body. 
This price should 
be a burden of the 
university; there- 
ward... a student 
body integrated, 
and respectful of 
one one another's 
culture and way 
of life." 

The reason Russell wants to take a per- 
centage out of Capital Expenditures is be- 
cause the account's purpose has changed 
over the year's from improving just the 
Student Union Building to improving all 
permanent campus stuctures. 

The 34 regents, who will vote on the issue 
in February, are considered CLU's govern- 
ing body and are elected by the university's 
100 con voca tors.

Trust is key 
issue for 
'92 election 

II used to be voters chose their president by 
whom they thought would do the best job. 
Now it has become a matter of trust. Has Bill 
Clinton waivered on the draft issue? Was 
George Bush really in the "loop" of the arms- 
for-hostages deal? Is Ross Perot really serious 
about that Vietnamese assassination attempt? 
The race keeps getting more curious as it 
gets tighter in the polls. Bill Clinton now re- 
sembles the heavyweight who is winning by 
rounds, but is desperately trying to avoid a 
knockout in the final flurry. 

Pepped by the polls, President Bush has 
taken to the attack and has been frisky enough 
to label his Democratic rivals "Bozos" and 
vice presidential candidate, in particular, 
Ross Perot has decided the press is as much 
his enemy as the other contenders and has 
taken them to task for daring to question his 
contention that the Republicans planned to 
sabotage his daughter's wedding or that Viet- 
namese assassinations were bitten in the rear 
as they tried to do him in during the 70s. 

This presidential race, once thought to be 
comfortably wrapped up as a fall gift to the 
Arkansas governor is heading into the stretch 
without a clear winner. Clinton's double-digit 
lead that held steady for so long has become 
shaky. One CNN poll of people most likely to 
vote even shows him with just a two-point 
margin. All polls show Bush gaining ground 

Perot on the other hand, showed why he 
dropped out originally. His thin skin wears 
thinner as the election moves on. He has man- 
aged to campaign for most of the election 
without leaving the comfort of the TV studio. 
Only recently has he abandoned his 
infomercials for the traditional stump. 

And while that was especially effective in 
the early stages of his re-entry, he seems to 
have hurt his chances with his accusations 
against Bush and the Republicans. His over- 
all effect on the outcome probably won't be as 
strong as originally predicted. 
Bush, on the other hand, seemed to do better 
once he got off TV. Generally considered the 
loser in all three televised debates and sinking 
in the polls, the president, nevertheless, began 
making his comeback once out of the trail. 
And his strong showings have re-energized 
him while Clinton struggles to hold on and 
keep his voice in the last days. 

How accurate the polls have been won't be 
known until the ballots are cast Tuesday. 
There have been more polls than ever before 
with greater variety than ever before, leaving 
one to conclude mat they all may just be 
meaningless. The one optimistic note Clinton 
can take from this, however, is his continued 
strength in the key states: California, New 
York, Michigan, even Texas, Perot and 
Bush's home slate. 
Tuesday will answer all the questions. 

Bush offers up agenda for another four-year term 

As the battle for the presidency comes to 
an end this week, no one feels the pressure 
more than George Bush, who, along with 
Vice President Dan Quayle, is struggling in 
his attempt for four more years. 

Here is how the incumbent stands on some 
of the issues: 

• His economic policy stales that the key ot 
economic prosperity is to limit the size and 
scope of government. 

• His social policy revolves arond two is- 
sues: supporting iradiyiional family values 
and reforming government programs to in- 
crease family aid in areas such as health, 
education and child care. 

• With the end of the cold war. Bush sees 
the greatest threat to world peace as regional 

• Bush supports a human life amendment 
that would ban abortion except in cases of 
incest or if the life of the mother is in dan- 

• Bush has increased federal funding on 
AIDS-related activities $1.4 billion and has 
provided money for local programs to dis- 
tribute condoms at high schools. 
• In 1991 Bush signed a civil rights bill that 
partially overturned Supreme Court deci- 
sions restricting affirmative action. He has 

backed aggressive enforcement of the Vot- 
ing ight Act, which has alomost doubled the 
number of congressional districts in 
whichblacks and Latinos are favored for 

• Bush supports public school choice and 
federal assistance for lowe middle-income 
parents who want to send their kids to pri- 
vate schools. He has proposed a program to 
allow students to borrow up to $25,000 for 
their college education. 

• He has signed an extension of the 
Reagan-blocked Clean Air Act. However, 
critics say Bush has delayed and weakened

Clinton-Gore promising social, economic reforms 

Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton and running 
mate Al Gore are promising improvements 
in the economy and social and foreign poli- 
cies as part of their Democratic platform for 
the presidency in 1991. 

Clinton says, if elected, he will push for tax 
fairness, a healthier environment and a 
woman's right to choose. A Clinton admin- 
istration would act quickly to put the reces- 
sion behind us, he says. 

These are some of Clinton's positions: 

• Economic policies will focus on invest- 
ing in education, job retraining and targeted 
lax incentives to boost American competi- 

•He supports a North American Free Trade 
Agreement, but only one that is fair to 
America's workers and farmers, protects the 
environment and ensures decent labor stan- 

• Clinton says he plans to create a trust fund 
enabling any American to borrow money 

for a college education, so long as they pay 
it back either as a small percentage of their 
income over time, or with a couple of years 
of national service as police officers, teach- 
ers or childcare workers. 

• He says he will put people back to work 
and establish retraining centers for those laid 

off in many Southern California industries. 
His plan would require all companies to 
spend 1 .5 percent of their payroll on training 
or put an equivalent amount into a national 
job training fund. 

• He wants to cut taxes on the middle class 
and raise taxes on the wealthy. 

• He supports the a woman's right to an 
abortion ir she chooses. Clinton signed a pa- 
rental notification law in Arkansas that re- 
quires a minor to notify either a parent or a 
court to receive an abortion. He opposes, 
however, parental consent for an abortion. 

• Clinton believes a healthy environment 
and a strong economy are not at odds. In a 
Clinton administration, the tax code will re- 
ward environmentally responsible busi- 
nesses and punish polluters. As president, he 
will support the Clean Air Act and the Clean 
Water Act 

• He supports the death penalty.

Perot presents option to 'business as usual' politics 

Independent candidate Ross Perot and run- 
ning mate James Slockdale may be the 
choice at the polls Tuesday for many people 
who are fed up with "politics as usual." 

This Texas billionaire-tumed-politician 
has come further than any other independent 
candidate. He has offered a fresh look at 
many of the problems facing society. 

Even if he is not taken seriously as a candi- 
date. Perot says his main goal is to make 
people aware that things need to be changed. 

Here is a look at his stand on some of the 
major issue 

• The issue Perot has dealth with most in 
the campaign is eliminating the S290-billion

Gender, nastiness highlight both Senate races 

Federal deficit high on Boxer's list of priorities 

With two seals up for grabs and a host of 
complex issues, California hurtles toward 
election day virtually undecided between 
one of the two races that pits two women 
against two men. 

Voters must decide between Democrat 
Barbara Boxer or Republican Bruce 
Herschensohn for the six-year term, or be- 
tween Democrat Dianne Feinstein and in- 
cumbent Republican John Seymour for the 
two-year seat vacated by Gov. Pete Wilson. 

The race centers around economic and so- 
cial issues, with the economy being the big- 
gest. Other relevant issues include the 
environment, abortion, taxes, the deficit and 

The latest polls conducted by the Los An- 
geles Times show Boxer with a one percent 
lead over Herschensohn among those likely 
to vote; Feinstein has a 54 to 40 percent lead 
over Seymour. 

This is the first time since 1850 that Cali- 
fornia has voted to fill both senatorial posi- 
tions. The need was created when Wilson 
was elected governor (in 1990 over 
Feinstein) and appointed Seymour to fill his 
vacated Senate seat. 

The other seat was held by Democrat Alan 
Cranston, who, in — 

the wake of health * 

problems and scan- 1 

dal, has decided not T ^ 

to run. 1 ^

Congresswoman Barbara Boxer is the 
Democratic nominee for the Senate seat cur- 
rently held by retiring Alan Canslon. She has 
been a member of the U.S. House of Repre- 
sentatives since 1983. 

Here are Boxer's postions on the major is- 

•Reducing the federal deficit is a goal high 
on Boxer's list of priorities. She favors the 
balanced budget amendment, but is opposed 
to the line-item veto, arguing it would give 
the president excessive power. 

• On the issue of income taxes, Boxer says 
the uniform 19 percent flat tax proposed by 
her opponent, Bruce Herschensohn, would 
"abolish the middle class" by raising its 
taxes while lowering those of richer Ameri- 
cans. She favors presidential candidate Bill 

Clinton's tax plan for those making more 
than $200,000. 

• Boxer is pro-choice and supports the Roe 
vs. Wade Supreme Court decision that legal- 
ized abortions in 1973. She was the author 
of the Boxer Amendment, which was the 
first major pro-choice legislation passed by 
Congress. She supports increased funding 
for family planning, but opposes mandatory 
consent or notification requirements for mi- 
nors unless there is a provision for a waiver 
of the requirements by a physician. 

On the environment. Boxer supports tough 
new laws to reduce pollution and make pol- 
luters clean up their waste. She authored the 
National Oceanic Protection Act, banning 
new drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific 

• Boxer favors cuts in defense spending, 
focusing on forcing Western allies and Ja- 
pan to pay for their own defenses. She pro- 
poses the U.S. defense budget be cut 40 
percent over the next five years to fund job- 
creation programs. The money would also 
be put into domestic programs such as health 
care, schools, the environment and deficit 

• She favors strong federal support and in- 
volvement in education, particularly pro- 
grams aimed at helping disadvantaged 

•Boxer supports legislation that would 
guarantee affordable health insurance for all 
Americans and is a sponsor of the Family 
and Medical Leave Act. 


Los Angeles to win the Republican primary 
over Tom Campbell and Sonny Bono last 

And now, as Boxer's once commanding 
19 point lead evaporates, political observers 
see another come-from -behind victory as 
possible. The "Los Angeles Times," on Sat- 
urday, OcL 3 1 , reported the results of the lat- 
est Field Poll as showing Boxer with 44 
points and Herschensohn with 43 points. 

This political contest between 
Herschensohn and Boxer is a true battle of 
ideologies and has, therefore, created na- 
tional interest. Boxer is a proud and defiant 
liberal. Herschensohn is an unapologetic 

The campaign took a wild turn on Friday, 
OcL 30, in Chico, when a Democratic offi- 
cial, Bob Mulholland, charged that 
Herschensohn frequented Hollywood strip 
joints and adult bookstores. Herschensohn at 
first declined to comment, but later admitted 
that he visited the Seventh Veil nude-dance 
club with a girl friend. 

Also, he stated that the bookstores he fre- 
quents sell a wide, variety of magazines. 
What effect these disclosures will have on 
the race is unclear, however, Herschensohn 
has campaigned on conservative family 
value issues and has appealed to fundamen- 
talist Christian groups for support. 

Although Feinstein vs. Seymour has been 
less exciting, the two have remained conten- 
tious. Seymour has pounded Feinstein for 
fiscal improprieties and Feinstein has ham- 
mered Seymour for the various ills that have 
beset the California economy. 

When these races started out after the pri- 
maries, they were billed as the lead in 1 992's 
"Year of the Woman." Although Feinstein 
and other female candidates remain strong, 
a loss by Boxer would lake some of the 
sparkle ■from 1 the -Democrats. 

Herschensohn backs strong conservative program

"The real acts of leadership aren't in 30-

sayings. They are in what happens when you 
sit down in the middle of the night and you 
try to craft a solution to some of the most dif- 
ficult problems," according to U.S. Senate 
hopeful Dianne Feinstein. 

Former mayor of San Francisco for eight 
years, Feinstein is the Democratic nominee 
for the two-year seat running against John 
Seymour. She ran unsuccessfully for gover- 
nor in 1990 against Pete Wilson. 

Feinstein has come up with a "blueprint for 
California's future." It is an outline of what 
she wants to do if elected. 

• In her "invest in America" plan for the 
economy, she proposes to take money spent 
on overseas defense and invest it in transpor- 

tation, improved technology, schools and 
the retraining of defense industry workers. 

• She is generally supportive of tax cuts to 
middle lower-class taxpayers and proposes 
to raise capital gains taxes while increasing 
taxes on the wealthiest taxpayers. 

• Feinstein wants to see $35 billion in cuts 
to the Department of Defense over a five- 
year period. She proposes to make Japan and 
Germany pay for their own defenses. 

While mayor of San Francisco, she bal- 
anced nine consecutive budgets and sup- 
ports a resolution requiring the president to 
present balanced budgets to Congress. 

• Feinstein supports the United Nations 
and free trade with China as well as the free 
trade agreement in North America. While 
supporting the Free Trade Pact, she would 

require a raise in the Mexican minimum 
wage and seeks to protect U.S. jobs. At the 
same time, however, she proposes an in- 
crease in border patrol. 
"The time has come when we must address 
once again the inner city and how you build 
it," she says. "I did it for nine years as 

• She supports a federally funded health 
care system "It is a basic human right." 

• She proposes a national Education Per- 
formance Act to set basic standards for 
grade levels and create a teacher pool for in- 
ner-city schools. 

Feinstein is also pro-choice and pro-envi- 
ronment. She opposes drilling off 
California's coast.

Seymour lone incumbent among Senate hopefuls 

John Seymour, who was appointed U.S. 
senator by former Sen. Pete Wilson after 
Wilson was elected governor, was bom in 
Chicago in 1937 and attended high school in 
Pennsylania before eventually graduating 
from UCLA in 1962 with a degree in real 
estate and finance. 

He is competing against Dianne Feinstein 
for the two-year seat that would finish out 
Wilson's former term. 

After having served in the U.S. Marine 
Corps from 1955-59, Seymour ran a real es- 
tate business business from 1964-1982. He 
was on the Anaheim City Council from 
1974-82 and served as mayor from 1 978-82. 

He was a state senator from 1982-91 when 
he was tabbed senator. Seymour says he got 
involved-in politics because he was fed up 

with the status quo. "I am convinced that one 
person can make a difference," he says. 
"This election is about change, and I am the 
right person to make this change." 

• The incumbent supports investment cred- 
its to encourage creation of new jobs. He is 
opposed to any tax increases. 

• He was a vocal opponent of former Cali- 
fornia Supreme Court Justice Rose Bird be- 
cause of what he called her anti-death 
penalty stance and many anti-business rul- 

• Seymour considers himself among the 
first elected officials to endorse term limits, 
wrote several tough, anti-crime law as and is 
a consistent supporter of the death penalty. 

• He sponsored a balanced budget amend- 
ment in the Senate this summer. 

• He supports the Strategic Defense Initia- 
tive, which will trim down $50 billion from 
the Department of Defense. 

• Seymour says he has an advantage over 
Feinstein because he has 17 years of busi- 
ness experience, while Feinstein has been in 
government all her adult life. 

• He approves of Bush's economic pro- 
gram including a 1 percent across-the-board 
tax cut and other tax reductions to improve 
the business climate. 

• The senator helped block a proposed 
Desert Protection Act and attempted to 
block western water legislation favored by

Thousand Oaks City Council 

candidates vie for two Thousand Oaks City Council seats 

Bob Lewis 

Lewis, a Republican, is the current mayor 
of Thousand Oaks and has been on the City 
Council for 10 years. 

Lewis advocates a strong ridgeline ordi- 
nance and the new hillside grade control. He 
wants to deal with the gang and crime prob- 
lem and to enhance the existing business 

He says the shape of the city on a scale of 1 
to 10 would be a 9 because Thousand Oaks 
has a strong environmental perspective, is 
financially secure and has a low crime rate. 
Lewis co-authored the Thousand Oaks 
slow-growth initiative. He takes credit for 
bringing in environmentally safe industry 
and for keeping Thousand Oaks secure 
through fiscal responsibility, and for acquir- 
ing open land at no cost to the city. 
Jamie Zukowski, 

Zukowski has been a resident of Thousand 
Oaks for nine years. She has no prior experi- 
ence in politics or government, and says 
people should vote for the person who will 
do the job, not by party affiliation. 

Zukowki wants to rebuild communication 
with residents through what she calls Neigh- 
borhood Councils. She also wants to deal 
with the gang and crime problems, reform 
redevelopment policies to give schools, li- 
braries, park districts, police and fire depart- 
ments their full and fair share of property 
taxes, protect ridgel ines. 

She wants residents to have the right to 
challenge City Council decisions that do not 
have community support She calls for the 
elimination of meetings between developers 
and Council committees. 


Wilkins is a former president of the Conejo 
Valley Unified School District in 1984 and 
1986. She was also part of the Governing 
Board of the Conejo Valley Unified School 
District between 1988 and 1989. 

Wilkins believes the arrogance of powers 
by the incumbents and others on the City 
Council causes distrust and anger in the 
community. Wilkins' goal is to have a beau- 
tiful, safe and healthy place to work and live. 

Wilkins negotiated $13.5 
million of redevelopment 
funds from the city for 
school. She wants to deal 
with the gang and crime 
problems. Most of all, she 
wants to openly publish all 
meetings relating to city 
business and to treat 
equally everyone who has 
business with the city.

Hagop Sagherian 

College student Hagop 
Jay Sagherian, 21, will 
make the Thousand Oaks 
homeowner his No. 1 priority if elected to 
City Council Nov. 3. He was motivated to 
run because he believes homeowners are not 
sufficiently represented. 

According to Sagherian, the qualities that 
would make him a good representative are 
honesty, common sense and being unbiased 
when a project comes for a vote. 

If he is elected, he says he will have an 
open-door policy to listen to homeowners 
and consult with them before making a de- 
cision that affects them. He is set against 
CLU's attempt to put a radio antenna tower

construction of Circuit City. 

"If the Circuit City project had come be-

cause of its size," he said. "I would have 
asked for a rezone of the property for a 
smaller building resembling the Chamber of

Dave Naegeli 
Dave Naegeli is a self-de- 
scribed punk-rocker who 
wants to break up the "old- 
boy network" he says 
makes up the City Council. 
He finds the current council 
sloppy and arrogant, espe- 
cially to young people and 
business owners. 

Born in Encino, Naegeli 
moved to Thousand Oaks 
when he was 3. He attended 
local schools and has taken a few classes at 
Moorpark College. Currently he is working 
at a "minimum-wage" job at the 
Wherehouse music and video store. 

Naegeli has held a number of odd jobs. 
He's made pizza, been a machinist, man- 
aged a clothing store in Beverly Hills. He 
wrote a gossip column for a rock magazine 
called Scratch, now called Rock City News. 
He's been in several punk bands. His spiked 
hair and unusual looks landed him extra jobs 
and photo shoots in Hollywood. 
Frank Schillo 
Schillo, one of two incumbents seeking re- 
election to City Council, has adopted the 
motto "preserve and protect' S for his cam- 
paign. The financial planner said he is seek- 
ing a third term because he wants to preserve 
and protect property values. 

Schillo believes T.O. residents want a 
council member who takes an active role in 
city government and brings leadership and 
common sense to the job. 

"My record shows how active I have been 
and how I have listened to your needs," 
Schillo said. He has been invovled in the cre- 
ation of a committee that planned the 
Newbury Park branch library, the creation of 
a forestry master plan lor the c i ly sireesand 
the start of ihe curbside recycling program. 
If re-elected, he says he will steadfastly ad- 

here to the general plan that has kept Thou- 
sand Oaks beautiful. He is dedicated to pro- 
viding improved sports facilities for the 
young and old. He wants to complete the 
work on the Civic Auditorium to provide 
entertainment. And he wants to look at what 
kinds of open space are available.

Hughes has made it clear that the one thing 
he will change if elected is the safety of the 
community. Hughes feels the city is starting 
to gel less safe and thinks it will be impos- 
sible to hold cultural events in the city if 
people feel it is unsafe to go to them. 

The candidate plans to increase the safely 
of the community, if elected, by pulling the 
necessary money into programs like Drug 
Abuse Resistance Education. He would also 
like to put more police on the streets. He 
feels young adults in the community need 
things to do and one of the first steps is mak- 
ing sure thai it's safe to do them. 
Paul Herzog 

Herzog sees some big problems with the 
way Thousand Oaks is going, and if he gets 
elected, he believes he has the answers to 
make the city a belter place to live. 

Herzog wants to see a community that has 
more social opportunities for people be- 
tween the ages of 18 and 55. Herzog wants 
to look into the expensive housing, the wors- 
ening traffic and the lack of jobs that pay 
liveable wages. 

The way Herzog plans to fix these prob- 
lems is by making himself and other city of- 
ficials more accessible to the community so 
that problems can be dealt with on a more 
one-to-one basis. 

Hank Bauer 

Bauer has what he calls a vision for Thou- 
sand Oaks and he hopes this vision will gain 
him a seat on the City Council. 

Bauer's goals for the community include 
discouraging overdevelopment through 
zoning, height limits, viewshed protection 
and landscaped setbacks. Bauer wants to 
concentrate on the business community to 
maintain economic vitality. 

He says he plans to achieve those goals by 
being a good listener to the community and 
getting the community's approval before 
giving his approval to major capital projects.

19th Assembly District 


Hank Starr 

Running against Cathie Wright for the 
19th Senate District is Hank Starr, an attor- 
ney for 35 years and a graduate of UCLA. 
Starr was "drafted" into running for the seat 
after giving a lecture called "What is Wrong 
With the Democratic Party." 

• Starr stands strong on education, and has 
been endorsed by the education community 
in Ventura County and statewide. 

•He has also taken a tough stance on crime, 
but says police officers and fire fighters must 
be belter equipped and better trained. 

• Starr claims that his opponent is tied to 
many special interest groups and received a 
total of S450.000 from them last year. These 
groups include insurance companies against 

insurance reform, medical organizations 
against lower medical rates, oil companies 
wanting to drill offshore and gun lobbyists. 

• He shares the opinion of Gov. Wilson's 
Council on California Competitiveness 
Commission that told how the business cli- 
mate of California can be improved through 
workers' compensation reform, tax incen- 
tives and other improvements of the busi- 
ness community. 

• He says that Wright is "out of touch" be- 
cause of her pro-life views on abortion, her 
opposition to bills that would allow mon- 
etary compensation for sexual harassment, 
and her opposition to some hate-crime laws. 

-James Kalakay 

Cathie Wright 

The political career of Cathie Wright will 
be decided by the voters on Nov. 3. Wright, 
who has served as a assemblywoman for the 
last 12 years. 

She is the favorite to win not only because 
she is an incumbent, but because of her 
strong views. In the last 12 years, Wright has 
accomplished many things and has had the 
best attendance record in the Senate. 

• Wright is the first woman ever to be the 
vice chair of the Assembly Ways and Means 
Comittee. She also carried legislation that 
helped create the nationally recognized 
Ventura Project, which helped bring $16 
million for emotionally disturbed children 

• The only Republican legislator appointed 
to Gov. Deukmejian's Commission on 
Child Support and Enforcement, the assem- 
blywoman carried 12 pieces of legislation 
on child support 

• To improve the business climate in Cali- 
fornia, particularly small business, Wright 
believes we need to reform the workers' 
compensation system, reform the regulatory 
process, expand the educational system fo- 
cus and recognize not all students want to go 
to college, and reform product liability laws. 

Wright began her political career in 1978 
as a member of the City Council in Simi Val- 
ley, where she served as mayor in 1979.

Democrat Roz McGrath is involved in sev-

is counting on that background to make up 
for her lack of political experience. 

• Some of the issues she has been address- 
ing in her political campaign include jobs, 
education, reproductive freedom and agri- 
cultural preservation. 

• A former member of the Ventura County 
Women's Employment and Education 
Committee, McGrath has helped women 
who were on welfare and unemployment by 
getting them off welfare and back into jobs. 

• As a former educator, she believes that 
children's rights to a quality education, 
childcare, health services and adequate 

housing are important to the future. "We 
need quality public education so our kids 
can learn useful skills, not lessons in gangs 
and drugs." 

• One of her arguments against opponent 
Nao Takasugi is her firm stand on pro- 
choice. She is a member of the Planned Par- 
enthood Advisory Council of Ventura 
County and a past executive director of 
Ventura County's Coalition to End House-

charges that California's rules and regula- 
tions chase businesses away. 

The worker's compensation system is the 
No. 1 job killer, he says. He also blames part 
of the problem on well-intended environ- 

mental laws that have become unintended 

• Takasugi wants to keep criminals behind 
bars. "The most important job of city gov-

nals leave prison before they have served 
their time."

noticed that students on the CLU campus are 
either very conservative or very liberal. 

Sophomore Ellen Acker has a different 
view. Acker is voting for Clinton and feels 
that Republicans have been given their 
chance at governing. She says the most im-

care and the economy. 

As for the recent mudslinging in the race. 
Acker says she doesn't listen to the mud- 
slinging because she has respect for Clinton 
and Gore and the way they have reached out 
to younger people through such projects as 
their appearances on MTV.

more conservative, they come to their 

In Bean's opinion, CLU is a conservative 
campus. Bean does not listen to what the sur- 
veys say about who will win the election. He 
explains that he believes a liberal media is 
trying to convince conservatives that 
Clinton will win so they will feel their votes 
cannot make a difference. 

"I don't believe any poll. Show me the

Velcro Wall generates money for SADD 

By Amy Walz 


Sponsored by Director of Campus Din- 
ing Ian Macdonald, Velcro Wall Day in the 
CLU gym on Oct. 21, gave students a 
chance to do something a little different as 
they strapped into velcro tabs, flying from 
a trampoline into a large Velcro wall sup- 
plied by Pepsi-Cola. 

The first 10 jumpers received free T- 
shins and students who participated were 
treated to Pepsi and refreshments by 
Marriott. One of the purposes of the event 
was to allow Campus Dining to interact 
with the students in a somewhat different 
environment besides the cafeteria and un- 
der completely different circumstances. 

"We want to be perceived as more than 
the people who serve the students in the 
cafeteria,' Macdonald said. "We feel we 
are part of the community here at CLU." 

Marriott paid $ 1 ,000 for the Velcro wall , 
which is also taken to such universities as 
Pepperdine, Westmont and Loyola 
Marymont. Marriott owns meal contracts 
with more than 400 schools across the 

Global Trade 
Center moves 
to Peters Hall 

By Amy Dale 


After two years of establishing its work- 
place in Alumni Hall, the CLU Global 
Trade Center has moved to a new office on 
campus in Peters Hall 208. The 
center.which was established in 1990 to 
assist local businesses in exporting their 
products and services to foreign markets, 
has also gained a new program director just 

The Global Trade Center is run by CLU 
students with the help of the new program 
director, Charles Maxey, and the faculty 
adviser, Anna Kwong. The students pres- 
ently working in the center are: senior 
Yoshi Takatsuka, junior Charlene 
Koutchak, Hazel Roy, Lillian Nordgaard, 
David Wideroe, Lynn Wheeler and David 

The services offered by the Global Trade 
Center include determining the feasibility 
of exporting a product or service as well as 
the financial resources that would be in- 
volved. The center does extensive research 
to decifer which international markets 
would be beneficial for export a particular 
product or service. The center determines 
if any product modifications are needed as 
well as what tariffs and duties are required. 
There may also be federal, state and local 

United States and will continue to have 
other similar events to "give back to the 
community," Macdonald said. 

Of the proceeds from the event, S250 will 
be donated to the national organization of 
Students Against Drunk Driving in the name 
of California Lutheran University. 

Students eagerly anticipated their turn to 
stick to the Velcro wall and have their 
picture taken. The most innovative, and 
among the highest jumpers were juniors 
Alex Corrigan, Dan Lent-Koop and Brady 
Day. Working to perfect her form and trying 
the hardest to slick to the wall was freshman 
Desta Ronning. 

"We had the oportunity to jump as many 
times as we wanted," Lent-Koop said. "Me 
and my friends tried to gel as crazy as we 

"I think overall it was very successful," 
Macdonald said. "We hired some students 
and a lot of basketball players to help. We 
had about 20 to 30 people who were hard 
core and who were doing it many times. 

"I think for a cold and rainy night and the 
fact that students have to worry about their 
studies, we had a good turnout," he said.

requirements that would need to be met 
before exporting could take place. 
The Global Trade Center has helped small 
businesses export to such countries as Ja- 
pan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mexico and 
Canada. The service provided was free of 
charge in the past but a minimal fee is now 
required . The center has assisted a variety of 
businesses including everything from fin- 
gernail products to health food. 

Cal Lutheran senior Rachel Austin, a 
former Global Trade Center employee, says 
"It was a wonderful experience in that it 
allowed me to pick up the knowledge neces- 
sary to help my own family's small business 

to start exporting overseas." 

Austin explained that students employed 
at the Global Trade Center work directly 
with the client and perform extensive 
research for them. She said the service is 
always professional and personal. 

The Global Trade Center is co-sponsor- 
ing a six-week seminar in connection 
with the Export Managers Association of 
California. The center's final seminar is 
Nov. 5. 

The center, which is currently seeking 
workers, welcomes any student who 
would like to volunteer and gain the expe-

Residents of several dorms in Old West 
have been plaqued with a series of fire 
alarms that have struck late at night and 
early in the morning. 

Most of the alarms have been caused by 
sensors that "are ultrasensitive." Thatmeans 
even fog and bugs can set them off. How- 
ever, Fodrea says there have been two cases 
in which they believe that someone has 
pulled the handle to set it off. 

The alarms have mostly disturbed resi- 
dents of Rasmussen. Mike Fodrea, Old 
West's resident director, "Due to system 
malfunctions, Rasmussen has had about 
six" incidences when the alarm has gone 

Janss has had one problem. Fodrea doesn ' t 
believe that the alarm was caused by a 
system malfunction or by a pulled alarm 

He says that it was probably caused by 
fog, a bug or a match that was held too 
closely to the sensor. 

Residents of the dorms have been an- 
noyed by the alarms and the thought of 
having to go outside while it is fixed. Cyndi 
Fjeldseth and Tasha Potloff, residents of 
Rasmussen said the alarms 'Take you out 
of the shower and wake you up in the 

middle of the night. You don'tneed an alarm 
clock to live in this dorm." 

Staci Slouch, who lives in Janss said this 
about her early-morning experience with 
the fire alarm. "I stood outside freezing in 
my nightgown and bare feet with 10 other 
students wailing for the security guard to 
come and turn off the alarm . When he finally 
arrives 15 minutes later it took him forever 
to let us back inside." 
Rasmussen was probably hit with the most 
alarms because the dorm has an old control 

The rest of the panels in Old and New 
West were replaced several years ago. 
Rasmussen's was replaced last month and 
the sensors were cleansed out. 

When asked if the alarm problem was 
fixed, Fodrea said. "As far as I'm con- 
cerned." Although he isn't completely sure, 
he says that facilities told him that the prob- 
lem has been fixed. '

Speaker questions the meaning of 'Significant health risks' 

By Shirley Doucusian 


Kale Neiswender, an environmental law- 
yer, spoke about the "Hidden Costs of 
Political Inaction in the Environment," for 
the Brown Bag Series Oct. 20 in the 
Women's Resource Center. 

The environmental infrastructure is dy- 
ing, Neiswender said. "Children cannot 
learn when they are living next to raw 
sewage." Their health is constantly under 

attack because the chemicals in the envi- 
ronment are so bad that children are always 
fighting some kind of illness. 

She also pointed out an Environmental 
Protection Agency statement that said "when 
there is no significant health risk the EPA 
will allow a pollution situation to continue 
unchecked. "What does "no significant 
health risk" mean? she asked. Why lake any 
risk of toxic pollution affecting many people 
or just one, she said in answer. Exposure to 
toxic pollution can be passed through the 
DNA and will affect future generations. 

On a political note, Neiswender said the 
Northwest Forest is being cut down. Locals 
are cutting the trees that create jobs. The 
worst aspect of this situation is that the 
United States' lumber is going to Japan. 
The United States is destroying its environ- 
ment to make Japan a greater superpower, 
she said. This is at a lime when the U.S. 
trade deficit with Japan is at the highest 

Neiswender said there are easy roads 
people and not-so-easy roads people can 
follow to contribute to the environmental 

cause. The easy roads are to write letters to 
congressmen and to work locally with an 
organization that meets with personal guide- 
lines and goals for the environment. The 
not-so-easy road consists of running for 
office, becoming a full- or part-time volun- 
teer, work to equalize funding in schools or 
file a lawsuit. 
Neiswender advised people to change the 
local governments before they decide to 
change the national government. Changing 
local government would make the regional 
environment more pleasant to live in.

Prospective voters should be required to pass test 

Lance T. Young 
Opinion Editor 

Just a few nights ago I was discussing the 
upcoming election with a friend of mine. 
She suggested that it would be interesting if 
there was only one vote per family. 

She was, I think, only half-serious but she 
claimed it would increase family closeness. 
According to her theory, the husband and 
wife would debate who they were going to 
vote for and when they finally decided 
upon a compromise their vote would repre- 
sent an entire family. I suppose the kids 
would be involved if they were old enough 
to be somewhat knowledgeable about the 
voting process. It only makes sense to be 
involved and to have an active voice in 
something that you are knowledgeable 

This led me to speculate about having 
some son of test to measure the knowledge 

of the prospective voter. In order to vote 
voters must first prove they have a reason- 
able grasp of the governmental system and 
process in general and the platforms of the 
specific candidates. 

I keep hearing on the radio stations when- 
ever I listen to "Just Vote - it doesn't mauer 
who you vote for or if you even understand 
a thing about them, just vote. That is the 
important thing." This seems to me one of 
the more irresponsible acts that someone 
could engage in. The actual physical act of 
voting is in no way more important than the 
result that it brings about. 

I cringe every time I hear the radio or the 
TV some person tell me just to vote and that 
it doesn't really matter if you know one 
thing about the candidate or not. This ad- 
vice is actually anti-productive. 

Without a proper understanding of the 
candidates' positions you could conceiv- 
ably be electing someone who will only do 
more damage to your specific area of con- 
cern. This"vote-at-all-costs" attitude which 
has swept the country and evolved into a 
"hip stance" to take is actually a sign of this 

country's own ignorance involving govern- 
mental procedures. 

"But how can you be sure on the candi- 
dates' positions? They all lie," someone will 
invariably raise as an objection. Yes, they do 
all lie but many of them have at least taken 
some sort of position, however wishy-washy, 
on some of the major issues. Check their 
voting record in the past. But don't just vote 
to be hip. 

This philosophy is comparable to sending 
a child to the store to do the family's shop- 
ping. The family only has S25 to spend and 
it has certain necessities — medicine and 
milk and vegetables, for example. But the 
father tells the son to just buy anything that 
strikes his fancy even though he knows they 
don't have much money. The child returns 
with 100 Hershey bars and a Playboy maga- 
zine. Moral of the story: Don't throw away 
something just because you have it. 

The voting test would not discriminate on 
the basis of age either. If you are well-versed 
enough in politics when you are 6, you get to 
vote; likewise if you are 56 and still don't 
understand it — sorry. 

I'm sure this would decrease the already 
low voter turnout but those voting would at 
least have a clue as to why they are voting 
a particular way other than party affilia- 
tion, or you thought the Ozarks were pretty 
cool when you vacationed in Arkansas so 
you'll vote for Clinton. 

The inevitable low voter turnout could 
lead to the takeover of special interest 
groups in the arena of politics. Maybe this 
would make people more motivated to 
learn something about the candidates. 
Maybe not. 

Another friend suggested that it become 
a mandatory procedure to vote. This means 
a fine or something if you don't go to the 
polls. The idea is intriguing but in a country 
that complains if a state passes a law yiat 
requires them to wear seat belts, I have a 
funny feeling this idea won't fly. Besides, 
it limits our freedoms and if I choose not to 
vote — why should I have to? It also sup- 
ports the theory and ideology of "Just vote — 
that's the important thing." In short, it 
supports ignorance. That's the one thing 
this country has enough of already. 

'60s civil disobedience is today's civil rigor mortis 

Opinion Writer 

This is the final countdown . . . compa- 
rable maybe to Hiroshima in that it will be 
the end of a destructive era and the com- 
mencement of a whole set of problems that 
were never solved but are now intensified. 

Yes, this is what I would like to call the 
presidential election of 1992, quite possi- 
bly the most important election of this cen- 
tury, taking place in a country where the 
people lost respect for authority years ago, 
and it is reflected in the chaos of our times. 

In California we see the problems that 
lace our nation in a greater form, for obvi- 
ous reasons such as size and numbers, but 
as far as I can tell our decline started with 
protests in places like Berkeley in the Six- 
ties, and the loss of reverence for our (once?) 
great nation, which may soon bring us to 
ruin. This spiral that we are slowly sliding 
down is the product of the ultra-liberalism 
that was bom in the eraof the Vietnam War, 
discontent that spread like wildfire from 
coast to coast tearing apart families and 
aiding in the dissentigration of the class- 
room across America. 

1 believe that at that juncture we, as a 
nation, discarded reverence toward author- 
ity, and with every government lie since, 
we have run even farther from the conser- 
vative values that led this country to great- 
nessfstiperidrtty hr everything from educa- 

tion to wartime need and response. (OK 
maybe we saw a glimpse of the past during 
the Gulf War because we learned from our 
mistakes and at least supported the enlisted 
this lime). But this is it: Americans love to 
do everything with a partial effort these 
days. Perot's run for the presidency, need I 
say more? 

1 have yet to see a candidate with edu- 
cated non-rehearsed answers to the burn- 
ing qucsuons of today; of course, I'm sure 
Bush had some of them but what media 
would give him the lime of day or the 
decency to report without rampanl liberal 

It proves my poini even more that America 
has taken a lackadaisical approach to gov- 
ernment in the fact that Bill Clinton has 
gotten this far ahead. Why aren 't his state's 
records printed in the paper? Obviously his 
critics aren ' t truly what they state to be and 
the media isoverrun with the kind of people 
that divided our country in the late Sixties: 
those who disagreed with our policy at the 
time and thought that sitting around defy- 
ing authority was the cure for the ills of the 

As far as I can see this contaminated view 
of civil disobedience evolved into civil 
rigor mortis that has led to laissez-faire 
elections characterized by having eligible 
voters staying home to watch "Cheers" re- 
runs on election day. 

Just as a teacher cannot teach without 
discipline which is created from the respect 
of his or her students, a government cannot 
operate without the support and equal re- 
spect of the constituents that it represents. 

Today we are seeing the sum of the dis- day in the newspapers and on television, 

gruntlement of the past three decades, not and most importantly the indifference the 

only in who we have allowed to face our populous shows to a government which is 

current president in the election, but in who feared — yet still admired all around this 

we allow to control and tint our views every planet we call home.

Staff Opinion 

Coming through again 

Homecoming week has always been a huge production. From the planning, organiz- 
ing and perpetration stages to the final results that somehow "magically'' appear, a lot 
of effort and work is put into the week. 

And every year the majority of the responsibilities and work for homecoming weighs 
heavily on the shoulder's of the ASCLU Senate. From all the unnoticed, unappreciated, 
and un thanked "little things" to the obviously bigger projects necessary, it is the Senate 
that pulls the majority of it together. And each and every year it seems most students 
forget the fact that the whole homecoming process, which took place on our campus 
Ocl 12-17, wasn't something that was worked on over the period of one night. 

This year's homecoming was no different — the Senate did the majority of the work. 
From the decorating of the cafeteria, setting up coronation, and the bon fire, to the 
dance, parade, and pep assembly, the Echo staff would like to tip our caps to our 
school 's Senate and let everyone know we're aware of how hard Senate worked in order 
to make the entire homecoming week run smoothly. 

We thank all of you for what you did for homecoming week. Your hard work and 

dedication was noticed and appreciated by us. -The Echo Staff

Nothing that terrible happened to me. 
Sorry. It was just a hum-drum week. Noth- 
ing really to do. No one really to see. 
Nowhere really to be seen. At least this 
gave me time to think. And I did just that. 
I thunk-ed. About stuff like this: 

• If I was asked to choose one person to be 
our next president (besides appointing my- 
self), 1 would pick George Carlin. I would 
have chosen Barney Gumble from the 
"Simpsons," but he is only a cartoon. I 
heard somewhere it was prohibited to elect 
an animated figure to our highest office 
(See the Popeye Act of 1 976, when the one- 
eyed sailor campaigned for the Democratic 
vote, barely losing out to Jimmy Carter, I 

• The only thing that is more retarded 
than beer companies making light beer is 
people actually drinking light beer. 

• I wish I was the guy that came up with 
the idea for the show "Mystery Science 
Theater 3000." I want my own show, I 
really do. Mommy, make me a TV star?! ! 

• Why do you ship things that are deliv- 
ered by car and stuff that goes overseas is 
called cargo"? 

• How come we get in more trouble when 
we say what we really think than when we 
tell people what they want to hear? We are 
part of a lying society. That's burnt. 

• I wish they didn't cancel the FOX show 
"Get a Life." Chris Elliot is cool. 

• No matter how hectic my day might be, 
I have to always remember to take time out, 
at least once a day, to give myself a reward, 
just for being alive. 

• I wish Mike Tyson never went to jail. 1 
really miss watching him pound opponents 
into mush. I wonder if they could televise 
his orison brawls. 

• If I could relive my life, I would do it 
exactly the same as I have, except maybe 
I'd have more money and more guts and

strange, random 
thoughts during 
hum-drum week 

more dates and less time in detention and 
some other stuff I can't think of right now. 

• When I was younger, I wanted to be 
president. I gave up the dream when I 
realized that presidents don 't get to frolic in 
their wealth (at least they don't show us 
that they do). It would have been cool. I 
would have painted the White House green 
(ponder that). 

• How come everybody was afraid of 
"The Fonz?" I think Potsy could have kicked 
his butt in a fair fight. 

• Why is everyone trying to impress 
everyone? Impressions depress me. 

• How come I'm always sick on Mon- 

• If I had all the time in the world to do 
something, I'd still wait until the last ten 
minutes to get it done. 

• I wonder if I will still listen to loud 
grunge music with explicit lyrics when I 
am an old man. 

• I wonder if I will live long enough to be 
an old man. 

• Which came first, Chad the name or 
Chad the country? If the name came first, 
was the country named after that guy? 

• If a tree fell in the woods and no one was 
there to hear it, would anyone really care? 

• The other day, I stopped in an AM/PM 
Mini Market in Malibu to refuel my Dr 
Pepper supply. When the cashier rang up 
my purchase, he said 'Thanks Jay." I never 
met him or even saw him before in my life. 
And he knew my name. I thought that was 

• Why do I continue to go to class, even 
though all I do is draw on my folder and 
occasionally disrupt the educational pro- 
cess of my fellow students? 

Thai's it. All my thoughts have been

some more, but I don't think they could be 

Support for

Editor's note: CLU senior Scott Farrell 
found out he had contracted cancer this 
past summer and has just recently re-

written while Scott was away from school, 
is from his girlfriend. 

I just wanted to personally thank every- 
one for their support and prayers during 
Scott's illness. Scott is contorted by all

I'm writing in support of the opinion

'Men, Women, Insanity,' smoke and humanity 

By Betina Nanzke 


Playwright Larry Thomas has produced 
and directed his plays in Fiji at the Suva 
Community Theatre. On the nightof Thurs- 
day, Oct. 22 Thomas' production of Men, 
Women and Insanity made its American 
debut at California Lutheran University's 
Little Theater. 

This play was about young adults and 
their thoughts concerning social issues in 
their country. Their comments on contro- 
versial issues such as sexism and racism 
were similar to those of young people in 
United States and around the world. 
There was conflict in the play when one of 
the characters returned from Australia well- 
educated and the others reacted with both 
criticism and jealousy. They then tried to 
figure out their relationships between each 
other, as well as their place in society. 

Teresa's character was the stronger per- 
sonality of the two female characters in the 
play. She was very blunt with what she had 
to say. When it came to talking about her 
sexual preference she was quick to bite 
back, which made the play a bit comedic. 
Cherylynn Carter's characterization of 
Teresa reminded me of Whoopi Goldberg. 
Martha played by Celena Alcala seemed to 
be strong willed around Teresa, but when it 
came to Joeli she appeared to become very 

The setting for the play was behind an old 
graffiti-covered factory in Suva, Fiji. 
Among the colors and darkness, there was 
a saying that stood out on the old factory 

"Men, Women and Insanity" (L to R): Dr. Russell Stockard, Craig Johnson, Herbe Borde, Cherylynn Carter, John Shaw 

wall. The message on the wall read, "Life is 
a dream." 

In a way this is true because if you close 
your eyes you and everyone around you 
disappears. Just a little ways away there 
was another saying that caught my attention 
it said/Tf the pain of love drives men to 

madness and the pain of death drives men 
to madness is love deadly or dead lonely?" 
You decide what the answer is . 

I feel that this play was good, but the 
acting could have been better. Only a few 
actors made their characters come alive. I 
suppose that someof them mighthave been 

nervous, because it was their first perfor- 

A problem with this play was that the 
actors were constantly smoking and there 
wasn't any ventilation. So we all had to 
inhale second hand smoke, even though some 
of us may not have wanted to. 

Children's 'Puss In Boots' a success -- that's no lie 

By Mike GretchokofT 


(Lto R): Lisa Weisenberger, Elisa Johns, Brian Harper, Siana-Lee Gildard. (Sitting) Shawn Travers 

The CLU play "Puss In Boots" began 
where the Twinkie factory had been de- 
stroyed by the nasty ogre, as three brothers 
sat and squabbled over their father's will. 

Boris (Brian Harper), the older brother 
who suffered from an unusually high defi- 
ciency of brain cells, was left his father's 
shoe workshop. Horace (Shaun Travers), the 
effeminate one, was left his father's lovely 
house. Strangely, Marcus, who was father's 
favorite son, was left a dingy old cat named 
Puss and his father's last work, a liny pair of 
sleek red boots. 

Marcus (Perry Ursem) was crushed. He 
was out of work and had no place to live. 
Why a pair of boots and a goofy cat? Marcus 

Of course, he had no idea that the cat would 
put on the boots and, as a result, be able to 
walk and talk just like a human. The play 
really picked up when Puss, played by Lisa 
Weisenberger, insisted that

Continued from page 13 

Marcus and she set out to seek their for- 

Horace and Boris has other ideas. They 
envisioned making millions off the talking 
cat. They tried desperately to capture the cat 
and might have succeeded if they weren't 

Needless to say, Puss was able to con- 
vince the King and Queen of the village that 
Marcus had indeed killed the grumpy ogre 
who had terrorized the village for so many 
years. His reward... half of the Royal King- 
dom and the Royal Princess. Who really 
killed the ogre? Puss, of course, the sneaky 
little devil. 

Shortly after the play began, I realized I 
was at the adult version of the play. The 
humorous sexual references were slipping 
out of every crack in the woodwork. If it 
was the children*s version, the CLU phone 
lines would have been very busy the next 
day with a lot of phone calls from angry 

Sean Atkins did a really good job portray- 
ing the ugly and disgusting ogre. If he wasn't 
scratching himself, he was grasping his big, 
thick tail. 

Kelly Culwell also did a great job as the 
sexy and snobby Queen who paid more 
attention to the handsome butler than the 
pathetically out-of-shape King. You see, 
the King ate too many Twinkies; he was 

I would have to say that the play was a 
definite success. The audience laughed 
hystericaly through the entire show, despite 
some of the really corny humor. 

The audience also participated in making 
sure Horace and Borisdidn'tget their greedy 
hands on Puss. If they weren ' t meowing like 
cows or howling like the wind, they were 
buzzing like bees to distract the two money- 
hungry savages. 

So what was the moral of the story? Ac- 
cording to Puss, who really kept the audi- 
ence tuned in with her delighfully sarcastic 
voice and energetic movements, it was this. 
"Lie a lot and trick people. It's really easy to 
Dick stupid people." 

This is a tremendously important and well- 
thoughtout concept we should all keep in 
mind and benefit from.

If you are looking for a fun, low-budget 
thing to do this weekend, you may want to 
check out the IMAX theater at the Califor- 
nia Museum of Science and Industry in Los 

The theater is located in Exposition Park 
across from the University of Southern 
California. It has been in operation since 
1984. They feature mostly documentary 
type films using the latest in IMAX technol- 
ogy. It is one of 75 Imax theaters located 

IMAX technology was invented by the 
IMAX corporation of Canada in 1970. The 
process involves filming a picture using 
true 70mm film stock, which is shot and 
projected sideways. 

The 70mm films, which you may see 
advertised in the paper, are really shot in 
35mm film and are then enlarged. This 
causes a loss of resolution and the picture is 
not as sharp as the IMAX picture. Since the 
film negative is so much larger when using 
true 70mm film stock, the only recent fea- 
ture film that has been shot using IMAX 
technology has been Ron Howard's "Far 
and Away". 

According to Steve Koc hones, the the- 
aters supervisor of technical operations, the 
theater has a screen which measures five 
stories high and 70 feet wide and seals 420 
people. The screen is so wide that it actually 
makes you use your peripheral vision. 

The sound is provided by a six channel 
surround sound. Each channel is indepen- 

dent of the other to provide the ultimate 
audio experience. Between the audio and 
the visual effects you really feel like you 
are there on location. 

When asked why IMAX is so special 
Kochones responded, "It is a way to take 
people places that they would never have 
been able to go to. You can't get the same 
experience watching TV or a standard for- 
mat film." 

Films that have been featured in the past 
include space shuttle footage called "The 
Dream is Alive", "The Grand Canyon" and 
a film about volcanoes called "The Ring of 

Currently, the theater is showing three 
films. The first film is a documentary about 
the engineering marvels of beavers which 
was shot at a 100 year old beaver dam in 
central Canada. 

The second film is about the continent of 
Antarctica, and the last film, called the 
"Blue Planet", features footage taken from 
the space shuttle via N.A.S.A's coopera- 
tion with the IMAX corporation. 

On NovemberlS they will begin show- 
ing a film about the tropical rain forest shot 
mostly in Costa Rica. If you are concerned 
about deforestation and rain forest destruc- 
tion this is one film you won't want to miss. 

Since show times vary, call ahead for 
specific dates and limes. The phone num- 
ber is (213) 744-2015. 

Admission is S5.50 for adults and $4.00 
for seniors and students with I.D. 

The shows usually last for about 40 min- 
utes. To see more than one, a multi-show 
discount is offered.

Women's Soccer ... 

CLU 10, Occidental (Oct. 24) 
Freshman Joey Allard had a hat trick as the Regals clinched the SCIAC champi-

Welch's approach remains 
positive as Regal volleyball 
nears end of dismal season 

By Gretchen Gies 


— — — — —— — — 

Regal Volleyball's current record is a de- 
pressing 7-14 overall and 1-8 in SCIAC. 
With these numbers, the Regals have a last- 
place finish in SCIAC cast over their heads. 
But despite the sorriful scenario, head 
coach Beth Welch disagrees that the team's 
performance has gone completely down 
hill. "The record has no bearing on our 
performance this year," Welch said. 

Compared to last year, the level of com- 
petition has increased within the confer- 
ence and non-conference matches," Welch 
said. Welch also pointed out that two teams 
are tied for the first and second place in 
SCIAC. Expectations have been met con- 
cerning program improvement, Welch said. 

"We have achei ved a higher level of play," 
she said. 

CLU volleyball is no longer a joke. Oppo- 
nents realize that the Regals are a factor. 
Outside hitter Laree Reynolds said, "After 
games coaches tell Beth that we are the 
belter team even though we had just lost." 

Many factors play into the poor perfor- 
mance record.However, Welch explains, 
"We are playing against a mental stigma. 
The team lacks some leadership, experi- 

ence, and con- 

It's obvious 
the Regals 
have a crop of 
talent but spe- 
cific keys to 
success aren't 
in place. 

If nothing 
else, the Regals 
are setting Beth We,ch 

themselves up for the next season with a 
losing experience out of the way. 'This is 
definately a building year with five Fresh- 
men," Welch said. 

Still, the Regals have no hope of acheiving 
a winning season (over .500). With that 
bare fact in mind, it will take a lot of heart 
and concentration to end the season on a 
positive note. 

"Every night we have to go out and play 
our best," Welch said. "We can 't expect the 
team to go roll over and die for us. We can't 
just pick moments to play." 

The Regals have three matches remaining 
in their season. They will travel Nov. 4 to 
Whiuier and Nov. 5 to Christian Heritage.

would like to see sophomore Jill Fuess

Kingsmen feel wrath of 
Redlands revenge, 56-24 

By Charlie Flora 


After anxiously waiting for a shot at the 
team that made its off-season miserable, the 
University of Redlands football team fi- 
nally got back at CLU in a big way Saturday 

The Bulldogs, who were knocked out of 
playoff contention by the Kingsmen in a 
21-10 upset in the final game of the regular 
season last year, eliminated CLU from the 
this year's SCIAC title race with a 56-24 
league win at Redlands Oct 31. 

The loss halted the Kingsmen's wirrstrcak 
at three games. CLU dropped to 3-4 overall 
and 2-2 in SCIAC and Redlands remained 
No. 1 in league with its 6-1,4-0 record. 

CLU will host the University of La Veme 
Nov. 7 at 1 p.m. and then travel to Whittier 
College for a Nov 14 SCIAC matchup at 7 

Now, any hope of CLU winning the 
league title in its first official year in SCIAC 
was doused by the Bulldogs' offense. 

CLU gave up a school-record 585 yards on 
defense and it was the worst loss for CLU 
since the 1988 60-0 blowout to Sacramento 

The closest CLU got in this game was 
with Ivan Moreno's two-yard touchdown 
run in the second quarter, which brought the 
score to 21-10, Redlands. 

Strangely enough, it was the Cal Lutheran 
defense that was the key to a 12-point 
victory over Menlo earlier in the week. 
Freshman Tyler Blackmorc led the way 
with 12 tackles and one sack as Menlo was 
held to just 182 yards on offense. 

CLU finished with four sacks on Menlo 
quarterback Ryan Ferguson, forcing him to 
throw four interceptions. Ferguson com-

to relate to each other. 

"Tim is my best friend," Amy said. "He 
has taught me more about life, goals and 
dreams than anyone else," Amy stated. 

Tim agrees that Amy has had a strong 
impacton his life. He says that they are very 
much alike in many ways, which has made 
him a stronger person. 

Both Wards are midfielders for the CLU 
teams, and the twins look to each other for 
guidance on and off the field. 

"We're both our biggest critics- about 
good things and bad things," Amy said. 
"We tell each other what we need to work 
on, and we're honest." 

"If I dwell on any negatives, than she 
encourages me by pointing out the posi- 
tives," adds Tim. 

Tim and Amy definitely display what it 
takes to have a strong brothcr/sister-twin 
relationship. "We've always had the same 
friends. He was able to ask me about girls, 
and I could ask him about guys," says Amy. 
Tim definitely agrees, "Because she is a 
girl, it was easier for me to be sensitive to 

"In fact. I never would have met my 
girlfriend if it wasn't for Amy." Tim further 
states that. "Amy and I share a special bond 
that twins have. We've always had an in- 
side smile between us." 

They both hope to go to Nationals this 
year and achieve personal and team goals. 
Tim believes that the teams must take one 
step at a time and believe that no goals are 
out of their reach. 

But, most importantly, says Amy, is "to 
be leaders and motivators in order to make 
a difference on the team."

CLU started off the season with three 
quick close losses to Pomona Pitter 
(27-2 1 ), Azusa Pacific (34-33) and the Uni- 
versity of San Diego (2 1 -20). The Kingsmen, 
then took out their frustration against 
Claremont, 41-7, on Oct. 17 and edged 
Occidental in a dramitic fashion with a 17-

Freshman kicker Ben Schuldheisz, who 
kicked a 36-yard field goal in the Redlands 
game, won the Homecoming game for CLU 
on a 34-yard attempt in overtime.

Student faces challenge of lifetime -- cancer 

Scott Farrell works 
toward a normal life 
after diagnosed with 
Burketts Lymphoma 

By Amy Anderson 


Scott Farrell began his senior year at CLU 
several months ago. He plans on graduating 
at the end of the year with his friends and 
then traveling to Europe and is hoping to 
find a good job with his business degree. 
But Scott has a problem that most college 
students do not ever think about. Last Au- 
gust he was diagnosed with cancer. 

"1 was feeling very light-headed. I didn't 
really feel like myself," Farrell said. 

So his mom suggested that he go to the 
doctor. Initially, it was thought that he might 
have been suffering from an ulcer. Several 
tests were done and the physician decided 
to send him to an oncologist, a cancer and 
tumor specialist. After a biopsy was con- 
ducted, the doctor determined that he had a 
20 cm tumor on his abdomen. He was 
diagnosed with Burketts Lymphoma. 

Because the tumor was connected to the 
mesentery gland, it could not be removed 
withoutcausing serious damage. Ever since,

Senior Scott Farrell, left, talks with his roommate, senior Eric Shaw 

Farrell goes to Huntington Memorial Hos- 
pital every Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.. 
to receive chemotherapy. 

On Fridays and Saturdays, Scott stays 
home and is usually pretty sick. But by 
Monday, he is ready for Monday night 
football where he provides the safe ride 
home for his friends since he is not allowed 
to drink much anymore. 
"It makes me feel good that I can drive all 
my friends back. At least no one has to 

worry about who can't drink," Farrell said. 

When Farrell first came back to school he 
was afraid to let people know of his illness 
for fear of how they would react. 

"I didn't want anybody to know. I didn't 
want people to treat me different. When 
someone would ask me how I was doing, I 
didn't know if they knew or if they didn't 
I wish I could sit down with everybody 
individually and tell them what's going on,

Cancer is high risk for 
students, but there are 
preventative steps that 
should be taken 

By Maristella Contreras 


Cancer is a disease that does not dis- 
criminate. Women, men and children are 
unfortunately plagued by this disease. 

"Cancer is a large group of diseases char- 
acterized by uncontrolled growth and spread 
of abnormal cells, " as defined by the Ameri- 
can Cancer Society. 

Unfortunately many people eventually 
get cancer. In 1992 about 52,000 will die of 
the disease, ACS statistics show. 

College age students do not seem to take 
the issue of cancer seriously despite the fact 
that they are at risk. 

In males between the ages of 15 and 34, 
Kaposi's Sarcoma, a cancer related to the 
AIDS virus, is the number one killer in this 
age group. Before 1982, Kaposis' Sarcoma 
was found generally in older men. Then in 
1982 Kaposi's Sarcoma was suddenly be- 
ing discovered in younger men. After in- 
tense studies, it was found out that Kaposi 's

Calling for change, Clinton wins tough race 

Other notable winners include Boxer, Feinstein; term-limit Prop 164 fails 

By Joel Ervice 


In what was a momentous year of public 
involvement, the 1992 elections are over, 
and come next year, America will have two 
new faces in the White House: Bill Clinton 
and Al Gore. 

The Democratic team rolled to a decisive 
victory, with 370 electoral votes and 43 
percent of the popular vote going for Clinton, 
and 168 electoral votes and 38 percent of 
uie popular vote going to George Bush. A 
270 electoral vote majority is needed to win 
the race. Independent Ross Perot, whose 
campaign seemed to sputter and die in the 
last few weeks, received no electoral votes, 
despite 19 percent of the popular vote. 

As even the President Bush said, the vote 
represents the people's desire for a change. 
"The people have spoken, and we respect 

the majesty of the democratic system." 

Clinton, in his speech given a few hours 
after the winner was announced, stated en- 
thusiastically in front of a crowd of 20,000, 
"with high hopes and high hearts. ..the 
American people have voted to make a new 

The reason Clinton was elected, the rea- 
son why the voters have that "new begin- 
ning," can perhaps best be summed up by a 
sign displayed at the president-elect's cam- 
paign headquarters in Little Rock, Ark. 
"It's the economy, stupid." According to a 
L. A. Times exit poll, "roughly seven out of 
10 voters said the nation is on the wrong 
track, and close to 40 percent reported that 
their own financial situation was worse 
now than it was four years ago." 

With change on the forefront of people's 
minds, there are enormous expectations 
they will get what they voted for. In the 

Senate, the Democrats still en- 
joy a majority, with 58 of the 
100 seats. In the House of 
Representatives, the Demo- 
crats again have the majority, 
with 259 of the 435 seats. Wiih 
the overwhelmingly Demo- 
cratic Congress coupled with 
a Democrat in the White 
House, there can be hardly 
any excuses for inaction. 

Elected the second young- 
est president in the nation's 
history, Clinton will set out to 
fix the problems of the coun- 
try through a domestically 
centered policy, with empha-

Novembers 1992 


Leonard wants CLU SUB to read CLU PUB 

Senior feels alcohol policy is ineffective; his solution has 'mixed' responses 

By Kristin Butler 


If senior Bill Leonard had it his way, the 
CLU Student Union Building, better known 
as the SUB, would soon be known as the 
CLU Pub. 

Although it may sound unrealistic, con- 
sidering theopposition that's been ex- 
pressed by the CLU administration and the 
Board of Regents, Leonard feels there's 
definitely some worth to his proposal. 

"My whole idea is that if you can get the 
entire student body behind something like 
this, you can force the university and the 
administration to take action." 

According to two separate limited sur- 
veys that Leonard submitted to both stu- 
dents and faculty, general opinion on cam- 

pus is that the alcohol policy is basically 
ineffective. Leonard went on to say that 
although his student survey was "a little shy 
for a statistical sample" because he sur- 
veyed only 80 students and most were up- 
perclassmen, the faculty survey was "more 
representative of the faculty's thoughtsabout 
the proposal." 

Leonard did say that the survey went into 
every faculty member's box except those in 
the Education Department. 

Dr. Paul McArdle, Dean of the Education 
Department, stated that his reasons for not 
distributing the survey were twofold. First, 
the survey wasn't received until the day it 
was supposed to be distributed to the fac- 
ulty, and secondly because McArdle didn't 
know if the survey had gone through the 
Animal and Human Subject Committee, 

which all surveys must go through before 
they can be distributed on campus. 

McArdle added that he tried to contact Dr. 
Beverly Kelley, a communication arts pro- 
fessor who's name was given as a reference 
on the survey, but was not able to get hold 
of her. 

"I send all questionnaires through such a 
process," added McArdle. 

Of the 30 surveys Leonard received back 
from the rest of the faculty, the results were 

Leonard went on to say that "People are 
going to drink on campus. Most teachers 
thought that the alcohol policy was not 
effective, so if students are going to drink, 
why not make a buck off of it?" 

Leonard added that he has approached the 
ASCLU Executive Cabinet with his pro- 

posal, but so far has not heard any response 
or reply. 

When asked about his thoughts on the 
possibility of a pub on campus actually 
materializing, Leonard's thoughts were 
fairily positive. 

"There have been two serious attempts in 
the last 21 years. The first was by students, 
and that really didn't go anywhere, and the 
second was discussed by the president's 
cabinet, but it really addressed dorm drink- 
ing and not the possibility of a pub." 

According to Leonard, an "air-tight pro- 
posal" could be taken to the administration 
within four tosix months if there wasenough 
student interest 

"As of yet, I haven't had any real support, 
but if anyone was willing to offer, I'd be 
more than happy to accept their support." 

Senate discusses clean-campus program 

By Amy Dale 


In an effort to keep the CLU campus 
clean, the ASCLU Senate at its Nov. 4 
meeting discussed spending $200 on trash 
can stickers promoting the cause. 

The stickers have been on campus trash 
cans in the past and proven effective. Sen- 
ate President Jason Russell said this would 
be a good investment because the stickers 
would last for several years and would help 
to keep our campus beautiful. 

In other Senate news: 

Russell was questioned by Sophomore 
Class Vice President Michelle Klumpp 
about some money he turned in for 
reimbursal. Russell apparently spent $8.3 1 
on dinner for himself and Brooke Campbell 
while working late one night. 

After a 30- minute discussion, the Senate 
did not approve of this and voted to have 
Russell pay the Senate for the cost of the

Senior Class President Rod Borgie dis- 
cussed the idea of producing a CLU video 
yearbook. The video would be made from 
photos and slides turned in by students and 
if produced, would be available for pur- 
chase. Borgie also discussed several ideas 
for the Class of '93 senior gift. 

One idea was to finance additional cam- 
pus phone lines. Another idea was to com- 
bine money from this year's class with money 
from the Class of '89 to buy a sign that 
would light up to be placed in front of the 
sports facility. 

The Senior Class is planning a senior 
social at Sergio's in conjunction with 
Moorpark College. The date has not yet 
been set. The Junior Class is planning a 
bonfire or an overnight cam pout.

Sarcoma is a cancer brought on by the 
AIDS virus. Unfortunately it does not 
appear to be a curable disease, but there 
are periods of remission. 

The next most common cancer in males 
between 15 and34 is Testis. Testis is a

Males are encouraged to self-examine 
themselves. Any signs of testicular mass 
or enlargement and they should see a 
doctor immediately. 

In women between the ages of 15 and 
34, breast cancer is the number one can- 
cer. Some of the risk factors for contract- 
ing this disease include: family history, 
first child bom after 30, obesity and never 
had children. But early detection by 
mammographies can deter the disease. If 

breast cancer is caught in the early stages 
a mastectomy or local removal with radia- 
tion therapy will take place. If the breast 
cancer is caught in the advanced stages,

"For women self-examination is encour- 
aged," said Lucy Ballard, the staff nurse 
and former director at the CLU infirmary. 
She was also emphatic that males should 
check themselvesout too, for cancer of the 
male genitals. 

Thyroid cancer came in next as the lead- 
ing cancer in women between the ages of 
15 and 34. Thyroid cancer is a benign or 
malignant thyroid nodule. These growths 
may be cystic or solid. Malignant thyroid 
nodules can spread and threaten life. 

As defined in "Symptoms, Illnesses and 
Surgery" by Dr. H. Winter Griffith., thy-

In Ventura County, in the most recent 
statistics found by the ACS, 2,535 people a 
year will be diagnosed with cancer. Of those 
2,535 , 1,090 will die. These statistics may 
seem grim, but encouragement is on the rise. 
More then half of these people will live, by 
modem technology and medicine . 

Early detection and treatment will pro- 
long a cancer patients life by five years. The 
most common procedures of cancer treat- 
ment is by surgery or radiation. The length 
of the procedure or surgery depends on how 
far along the cancer has spread. It also 
depends on how the doctor treats the cancer. 

In CLU over the past years, Ballard has 

seen malignant melanoma, that is cancer of 
the skin by overexposure of the sun, cervix 
cancer, breast cancer and Hodgkin's dis- 

Some cancer warning signs defined by 
the ACS are: change in bowel or bladder 
habits, a sore that does not heal, unusual 
bleeding or discharge, thickening or a lump 
in breast or else where, indigestion or diffi- 
culty in swallowing, obvious changes in a 
wart or mole and, last but not least, a nag- 
ging cough or hoarseness. If any of these 
signs are present a doctor should be con- 
tacted as soon as possible. 

The ACS also believe the preventative 
measures can be taken. Students should 
have lower fat intake, eat plenty of veg- 
etables and fruits, ingest more fibers, and 
perhaps most importantly, less intake of 
alcoholic beverages. These guidelines will 
not prevent cancer but they will delay the 
onset of cancer, and help the body with- 
stand the severity of cancer.

the election include the two victories of 
Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein in the 
California Senate race. Boxer narrowly 
defeated Bruce Herschensohn, while Dianne 
Feinstein easily outdistanced Republican 
John Seymour. While thismeans two Demo- 
crats represent California, this was also the 
first time a woman has ever been elected to 
a Senate seat in this state. 

In a move that can be interpreted as an 
attempt to end the age of career politician, 
Proposition 164, establishing term limits on 
California's senators and representatives, 
was passed. The similar propositions passed 
in 13 other states. 

While Prop. 164 keeps career politicians 
out, there is some fear California and the 
other thirteen states will not be able to 
represent themselves as best as they could. 
"When we can only serve six years and 
others can serve 30. . .we'll have no chair- 
manships, no positions in leadership," said 
Rep. Jerry Lewis of Redlands. Proponents 
argue term limits are the best way for re- 
forms in Washington. 

In one other significant outcome, Prop. 
161, the bill that legalizes physician-as- 
sisted death was voted down by 54 percent 
to 46 percent Opponents of the bill claimed 
it did not offer enough safe guards. Propo- 
nents countered, saying this type of bill is 
needed for those with terminal illnesses.

Urban Plunge provides life experience 

By Alfonzo Gonazalez 


Urban Plunge, a Campus Ministry organi- 
zation, took a field trip Oct. 22 to Santa 
Monica to visit a some places where CLU 
students can rarely be found: three home- 
less shelters. 

The first shelter they visited was called 
"Step Up on Second." This homeless shel- 
ter was only for people who are mentally 
ill. The illnesses of the shelter residents 
range from severe depression to schizo- 

This main purpose of Step Up on Sec- 
ond is to portray a positive altitude toward 
residents in the hopes that they will some- 
day be able to function properly in society 
in order to find work and support them- 
selves outside of the shelter. This type of 
community interaction can be accom- 
plished by a doctor counseling those liv- 
ing in the home, teaching residents the 
work skills necessary for applying to and 

holding a regular job and most importantly 
teaching them to believe in themselves. 
The second homeless shelter Urban Plunge 
went to was called "The Turning Point" 
This shelter provides residents with three 
meals a day, and has shower and sleeping 
facilities for up to 36 people. In order for 
homeless people to be eligible to stay at The 
Turning Point, however, they must be evalu- 
ated by the staff. 

The final shelter that Urban Plunge vis- 
ited was a teen homeless shelter called 'The 
Stepping Stone." This shelter was across 
town from the others, and it houses six 
homeless teens (17 and younger) for 14 
days. The residents of this shelter are usu- 
ally runaways, troubled teens who have 
problems at home and pregnant teen-agers. 
The Stone also has a specific set of rules 
that teens must follow in order to stay for the 
full two weeks. Residents are expected to do 
daily chores, obey a six o'clock curfew, and 
respect any other rules set by staff. If any of 
these rules are broken or disobeyed by resi- 

dents, they are asked to leave immedi- 

The kids at The Stepping Stone who 
obey rules set by the staff can benefit 
greatly from the program. Residents are 
encouraged to receive counseling, and 
get much of the love and support from the 
staff that they may not otherwise get 
outside of the shelter. 

Although The Stepping Stone tries des- 
perately to help out as many teens as they 
possibly can, one staff member explained 
that there are over 10,000 runaways in 
Los Angeles each night alone, and only 
one teen shelter in the area. 

Step Up on Second, The Turning Point 
and The Stepping Stone are all govern- 
ment aided, but recently financial support 
has been slowing to these and other shel- 
ters in the area. For the thousands of 
homeless in Los Angeles and for the 
millions across the country, this can only 
be the capping blow to an already desper- 
ate situation.

Ian Macdonald making a 
difference in the cafeteria 

By Katie Payne 


Stephan Berg 

If you've noted some changes in the caf- 
eteria this year, there's a reason. The reason 
is Ian MacDonald - the new director of 
campus dining. 

MacDonald, who is Scottish, spent seven 
years at the McDonald's Corp. While there 
he was a field representative and worked 
with owners and operators. 

MacDonald decided to leave the com- 

Kelley speaks on 'Year of the Woman' 

By Kimberly Geiger 


This is not the "Year of the Woman," 
according to Dr. Beverly Kelley, "but we're 
almost there." 

The Communication Arts Department 
professor offered advice to women politi- 
cal candidates during the Women's Re- 
source Center Brown Bag Series held Oct. 

Kelley's six recommendations for future 
feminist candidates included: the impor- 
tance of timing, turning your weaknesses 
into strengths, cultivating a national repu- 
tation, being yourself, arging on your own 
turf and avoiding devisive issues. 

She used the example of Mary Robinson , 

who was elected president of Ireland. 
Robinson had no money or media access 
and did all her public relations by talking 
with people one-to-one. 

She traveled to every city three different 
times during her campaign and talked to 
the residents. 

Her slogan was "A mother can be a prime 
minister, a mother can be a president" 

Kelley discussed how men define elec- 
tions outside a woman's expertise. 

An example of this would be former vice 
presidential candidate Geraldinc Ferraro 
who looked like an outsider during George 
Bush's analogies to sports and his very 
light-hearted response to pressing issues. 
Ferraro stressed her hard work, loyalty and 
commitment, which voters saw as a 

"follower's" qualifications rather than a 
leader, Kelley said. 

She suggested Ferraro should have <ir- 
gued on her own turf by stressing the qual- 
ity of life, an area women are seen as 
comparable leaders to men. Ferraro could 
have talked in terms of household budgets, 
involvement with the commnity and fam- 

Kelley feels that this is the year of the 
"anti-incumbent." Women are not relying 
on men to help them get ahead; women are 
putting themselves in office and making 
their opinions known. 
An example of this is California's unprec- 
edented number of female candidates: two 
for the Senate and 16 for the House in the 
recent election. 

pany because of his hectic traveling sched- 

"I was looking for a position with a com- 
pany that would allow me to spend more 
time with my family," Macdonald said. "I 
came upon Marriott rather by surprise." 

After he started working for Marriott, 
MacDonald worked at Westmon t College in 
Santa Barbara for three semesters. He ap- 
plied for his current job at CLU after former 
campus dining director Burke Alford, va- 
cated the position. 

MacDonald ' s duties haven't been just at 
the cafeteria. He said that he wants to be 
"part of the community." He recently helped 
bring the Velcro wall to CLU. On election 
day, he offered a cookie and a soda or a cup 
of coffee to anyone who brought their ballot 
stubs to the coffee shop. He is also helping 
Global Peace and Justice with their Global 
Peace Fast. If a student gives up a meal 
during the fast, MacDonald will donate food 
to areas designated by Global Peace and 

MacDonald said he sees Marriott "as part 
of the campus team." He plans to "open up 
the lines of communication between us and 
the students and be more accessible." 

He has hired a nutritionist who comes once 
a week. Students can make an appointment 
to see the nutritionist. Six students have been 
hired to be a part of a menu committee. 
According to MacDonald, they will have 
"the final say what's on the menu."

What's in a word? It may depend on who's listening 

"Freedom above all." — Beethoven 

Due to some recent events regarding the 
newspaper and the use of some "inappropri- 
ate words" found therein a new policy con- 
cerning what words can and can't be used in 
the Echo is being kicked around. 
When I first heard about this I didn't give it 
much thought— I failed to realize the long- 
term consequences of such a policy that 
restricts the use of words. They can call it a 
policy if they choose but what I call it is 
censorship. As a creature who hopes to eke 
out a living through the use of words placed 
in particular arrangements on a sheet of paper 
I find any policy or rule that dictates what is 
"good and appropriate" as opposed to what is 
"evil and offensive" to be quite controversial 
and highly subjective. 

Words create their effect from context and 
definition yes, but even more so from how 
the reader interprets them based on his own 
past, memories, experiences and intelligence. 
What is a "bad word" to some is merely 
tedious to others. I refuse to believe that there 
are "bad words" — merely words that do not 
fit the context as well as some. It all comes 
down to choosing the words that you (notice 
the pronoun please) the writer, the intellec- 
tual force behind the written symbols, feel 
express your ideas and thoughts as lucidly as 

Lance T. Young 
Opinion Editor 


Words are inadequate. Ernest Hemingway 
said (and this is a paraphrase): The problem 
with the language today is that all the words 
have lost their edge from loose usage." It is 
true but still, words do have an effect on 
people. Why else would the university feel 
the need to curb the use of certain "iffy and 
naughty" words and create a policy that states 
that the words they deem unsuitable are, for 
all practical purposes, off limits. I'll write 
what I want because I don ' t use a word just for 
grins take writing too seriously for that), I 
use a word because, to me, that word repre- 
sents most efficiently all that I am trying to 
say and if the university feels otherwise they 
can remove me from my position as opinion 

I was going to "let it go" as they say, and sit 
meek and submissive and allow die univer- 
sity to make a policy that slates what words I 
can use and which ones I can't bu^ afjer

Opinion Writer 

Yeah, I know Halloween was over a week 
ago. I know talking about it would be old 
news. But, you know what. I am going to do 
it anyway. There is nothing you can do to 
stop me. Ha, ha, ha! I am controlling you! 
Sorry, I just wanted to feel important for a 
brief moment. 

My older brother always comes back into 
town on Halloween. His band plays at their 
manager's home in Thousand Oaks around 
this time each year for their friends in what 
always seems to turn out to be either the best 
or worst (depending on what you consider 
fun) party of the year. 

Anyway, my brother finally lollygagged 
into town by about 7 p.m. and we tried to 
figure out what we wanted to be (we always 
make sure to have the worst or most obnox- 
ious costume of all of the maniacs who 
show up at this particular gathering). 

I started out wanting to be Pippi 
Longstocking, but it became too compli- 
cated. After mixing and matching lor awhile, 
I ended up looking like the lovechild of 
Amelia Aerhart and the lead singer of Right 
Said Fred. It was OK, but not as good as the 
bloke from the cull classic "A Clockwork 
Orange" that I dressed up as last year (Bart 

Halloween lives 
on even after the 
headache's gone 

Simpson copied me, so it must have been 
cool). On the other hand, it was a lot better 
than my costume two years ago (Danny 
Terrio, king of disco). 

My brother started out as a star-bellied 
Sneech (didn ' t you ever see Dr. Suess films 
on rainy-day schedule in grade school?), 
but discarded the costume. He ended up 
going as Charles Manson in drag (sick and 
demented, yes, but that's what Halloween 
is all about, man). 

But, no matter how hard we tried, my 
younger brother won the scariest costume 
without even dressing up. He combed the 
dreadlocks out of his orange hair, which 
resulted in an orange explosion of an afro. 
It was unbelievable. It was beautiful. Just as 
a comparison, it was twice as big as the one 
worn by Dwayne in "What's Happening! !" 
(My brother met him in a bar once. Every- 
one was trying to get him to say "Hey, hey, 
hey!" which Dwayne made a science out of 
in his acting days. I think he's doing those 
stupid "California Diet" commercials with 
Janet from "Three's Company" that you see 
at 2 a.m. or on Sunday mornings. Let's wish 
him well). 

See ASHKINOS, Page 7 

ruminating on the situation for a while, 1 
decided that if there was anything worth 
fighting over it is the freedom of expression 
and the right to say whatever one feels one 
needs to. 

Don 't think I am not aware that this is not a 
Christian university (in name at least) and 
that this newspaper is circulated to a wide 
variety of parents, faculty, convocators, 
alumni, regents, and others. There are poli- 
tics involved, no doubt, and enough heat was 
put under the feel of certain people for them 
to decide to make a policy regarding the use 
of "proper and safe" words but I fail to see 
why this should make a difference. 

Yes, the paper is university-funded but I 
would hope that the school wouldn ' t resort to 
blackmail to keep its leash on the student 

There are policies regarding libelous mate- 
rial — that is to be expected but one regarding 
the use of words is outrageous. I think it 
shows the ignorant black-and-white mind- 
set of this university. This is a conservative 
Christian university but it is not (I hope) a 
totalitarian regime. That the university could 
make a policy on such a subjective and per- 
sonal area as words is preposterous. It lends 
itself to Orwellian nightmares: "Well I'm 
sorry, Mr. Writer, but you can't use the word 
"evil" in your column. Yes, it offended an 
elderly woman in Pasadena. She said it gave 
her an icky feeling when she read it. Yes, 
we'd appreciate if you'd never use it again. 

Thanks. Also, we had a problem with your 
use of the exclamation "Geez!" Yes, it seems 
that it is a shortened form of the ancient usage 
of "Jesus" and that won't do. You know we 
are a sensitive and ignorant and uncreative 
lot, Mr. Writer. Please bear with us." 

Writing, for me, is a means of self-expres- 
sion and in order to express myself most 
clearly I will use whatever words I think will 
work. I have only 26 letters to choose from 
and it is a frustrating task. The day they 
decide toenact apolicy that limits my choices 
of creative expression is the day I can slate 
with assurance that this institution could care 
less about any sort of artistic means of literary 
expression and any institution that breeds 
and fosters this kind of anti-iniellectualism 
and refuses to respect the written word as a 
means of expressing ideas is hardly worthy to 
be called a university. Maybe CLU should 
cease being a college and rid itself of students 
(I ' m not sure there is room for ihem what with 
the large egos of the administration thinking 
thai they have the divine power to dictate 
what words can or cannot be used and that the 
world revolves around their inflated ideas of 
themselves) attempting to expand artistically 
(they are only trouble to the siatus-quo in the 
long run anyway) and have all ihe convocators 
and regents and administration sit around the 
deserted campus and congratulate one an- 
other on saving the school from the ruin that 
would have certainly followed had the news- 
paper used words in an unrestricted manner.

Rug-rats even bother mice 

Saturday afternoon in the Student Union Building. A place to relax, spend some 
time with friends, and give in to that video game fix that's been nagging for weeks. 

A pool ball is rifled against the wall of the Echo office, startling the mice who've 
made small condominiums out of the many cardboard boxes stacked in the comers. 
A video game sways back and forth after being slammed by the small fist of 
frustrated 10-year-old. The television, cranked to full volume, works in conjuction 
with the juke box in a cruel and harmonious scream-along combining the WWF 
wrestling program to Michael Jackson's "Jam." 

Can you say "annoying? It seems that lately, this building is serving more and 
more pre-pubescent community kids than serving its intended purpose: providing 
a place for college students to relax and enjoy life outside their dorms or classrooms. 

We understand there are several people at CLU who have returned to or begun 
college after they've started familes, and the SUB is seen as a safe place for kids 
while classes are in session. 

The SUB, however, is also the home of the Echo. Unlike school, weekends are no 
excuse for not working, and many of the staff members can be found working on 
and editing stories, laying out pages, and generally getting in each other's way. 

Since the Senate has put so much money and effort into the SUB this year to make 
it a more attractive place for CLU students, we feel there should be some restrictions 
on who can use its equipment, so that Saturday's in the SUB are reserved for the 
students, not for the neighborhood Munchkins. -- The Echo Staff

Despite mandate, Clinton likely

Continued from Page 6 

As far as the evening went, aside from 
the costumes, it was . . . well I don't 
remember that much. I think I had fun 
though. Here's 10 things I did remember. 

1. 1 did not have to apologize to anyone 
the next day. My brother was on the phone 
for hours. 

2. I didn't spend the whole night 
rewatching "Evil Dead" movies. 

3. 1 didn't set my neighbor's lawn on 
fire (a first). 

4. 1 didn't spend the evening avoiding 
being beaten up by angry hession thugs I 
had doused with shaving cream. 

S. I didn't have to wake up early the 
next day. Oh, wait ... yes I did. I never get 
rest, I guess, I guess. 

6. Everyone forgot how much of a fool I 
made out of myself last year. 

7. Someone jumped off of the roof and 
broke a glass table ... and it wasn't me. 

8. 1 think, at one point in the evening, I 
sneaked into the McDonald's playground 
and played in the tub of plastic balls. Yet 
another check off of my list of things to do 
before I die. 

9. My brother didn't lose the car keys 
then pass out, forcing me to walk home 
(broke a three-year streak). 

10. 1 left the party just as cops arrived. 
When they shined their flashlight on the can 
in my hand; they were all suprised to see that 
it was a Dr Pepper. I stumped them. Isn't 
that something? 

I wish every day was Halloween. I wish 
we didn't need an excuse to dress up as 
some outlandish character and be uninhib- 
ited fools. Deep down inside, I know you 
do, too. 


I would like to express my concerns and 
troubles regarding the priorities of whom- 
ever schedules the CLU gym for certain 
events. I just found out that our hard- 
working women's volleyball team was 
kicked out of its own gym for its game on 
Friday , Nov. 6 so the Conejo Valley Sym- 
phony could practice for its performance 
on Saturday, Nov. 7. 

I have a problem with this procedure of 
giving the community first "dibs" on the 
gymnasium. I understand it is important 
to be in good relations with the commu- 
nity, and 1 also know the symphony does 
provide the university with a certain 
amount of funds for using our facilities. 
However. 1 think someone needs to de- 
cide where his/her priorities are when our 
iris team is booted out of its gym- 
nasium for a symphony to practice. 
I do not know who makes these deci- 

sions, but whoever did it needs to under- 
stand that the students of this university 
should be more important than the local 
symphony (or community for that matter). 
The students are the ones who keep this 
un i vers i ty going. When the students aren't 
the most important thing to the university, 
something needs to be changed. 

Obviously, I am a little upset about this 
situation. This is not the first time in my 
two and and half years here the community 
has been put in front of students when it 
comes to the gym. I honestly feel die 
policy needs to cease. I don't care how 
much money the symphony or whomever 
uses the gym pays us. It is our gym and we 
(especially our sports teams) should get to 
use the gym when we want to. To kick a 
team out of their gym for a scheduled 
game is terrible. 

Russell White, junior 

Ultimately, it was a weak economy and 
the lack of a clear message about the future 
from President Bush mat gave Gov. Clinton 
a decisive victory on Tuesday. Not since 
the days of Jimmy Carter have the Demo- 
crats enjoyed control of both houses of 
Congress and the presidency. 

President-elect Clinton now has a man- 
dale for change on the economy, health 
care and the environment. However, while 
Clinton may have a political mandate, he 
faces several obstacles in attempting to 
govern the nation. Among the problems: a 
$4 trillion federal deficit, a looming bank 
crisis, a weak growth rate in the economy, 
business debt and consumer debt. 

So, even if Clinton wants to create new 
programs and stimulate the economy, he 
may not have the resources to do the job. 
Winning the presidency may have been the 
easy part for Clinton. 

The Year of the Woman 
Women won big in U.S. Senate races 
around the nation. The number of women 
senators increased from three to seven. 
Here in California Barbara Boxer and 
Diannc Feinstein won their Senate races. 
For the first time a state will be represented 
by two women. 

In otherclosely watched U.S. Senate races 
women did quite well. In Illinois, Demo- 
crat Carol Moseley Braun became the first 
black women to serve in the U.S. Senate. In 
Washington, Democrat Patty Murray, the 
"mom in tennis shoes," also won. 

The only real disappointment for the year 
of the woman was in Pennsylvania where 
incumbent Republican Arlen Specter de- 
feated Democrat Lynn Yeakel. It was this 
race that sparked national interest in the 
year of the woman because of Spec tor's 
tough questioning of Anita Hill in the 
Clarence Thomas hearings last October. 
The Year of Term Limits 
California was one of 14 states where 
voters had the opportunity to limit the terms 
their congressional representatives may 
serve. That all 14 states approved term 
limits reflects an anti-incumbent mood that 
is sweeping the country. 

Incumbents are almost impossible to beat 
and are rarely challenged. As a result, there 
is usually little turnover in Congress. Of 
course, with a House bank scandal, frustra- 
tion with the federal deficit and anger with 
congressional gridlock, this year saw an 
unusually high turnover rate with 1 10 new 
members elected to the House on Tuesday. 

These election victories for term limits 
have now set the scene for court fights as 
opponents seek to overturn these new laws. 
While many legal experts believe that term 
limits are probably unconstitutional, the 
courts have yet to rule on them. 
Thinking Locally 
In general. Republicans did quite well 
in conservative Ventura Couniy. In the 
19th Assembly District, Republican Cathie 
Wright got 52.8 percent of the vote to 
defeat Democrat Hank Starr, who had 39.2 
percent. In the 37th Assembly District, 
voters gave Republican NaoTakasugi 50.2 

percent of the vote to defeat Democrat Roz 
McGrath who polled 43.6 percent. 

In contrast, the 24th Congressional Dis- 
trict saw Democrat Anthony Beilenson pull 
66 percent of the vote to crush Republican 
incumbent Tom McClintock who received 

John Torres 
Student Writer 

only 38.6 percent. Not since 1944 has a 
Democrat represented Ventura County. 

The Thousand Oaks City Council race 
was a shocker. Jaime Zukowski, a political 
newcomer and an ally of Councilwoman 
Elois Zeanah, won the most votes to gain a 
seat on the City Council. Incumbent Frank 
Schillo came in second to won a third term. 
Mayor Bob Lewis lost his council seat. 

What these changes mean to CLU's con- 
tinuing efforts to build a radio tower is 
unclear. However, after a year- long delay 
at enormous cost to the university, it was 
hoped the tower would finally be OK'd. 
The Big Picture 

First, of course, this was a bad year for 
Republicans. Going into this election. Re- 
publicans had hoped to pick up seats in the 
U.S. Congress and the state Assembly. 

While Republicans gained nine seats in 
the House, they had hoped to increase their 
number by at least 20. In the House, Demo- 
crats now number 259 to 175 for the GOP. 

In the Senate, the Republicans lost one 
seat. Now, Democrats hold a 58-seat ma- 
jority to 42 for the Republicans. 

The state Assembly was disappointing to 
Republicans who had hoped to become a 
majority party. Even with fairer redistrict- 
ing, Republicans lost two seats and now 
face a Democratic party that enjoys a 49 to 
31 advantage. 

Second, women and minorities made sig- 
nificant gains in congress. Illinois elected 
the first black woman to the Senate. Cali- 
fornia became the first state to elect two 
women to the Senate. Colorado became the 
first state to elect an American Indian to the 
Senate. In addition, in the House, blacks 
were expected to hold 40 seats. Latinos 15 
seats and Asian Americans seven. 

Third, Americans are disgusted with poli- 
tics as usual. Term-limit initiatives passed 
in 14 states. Voters elected 1 10 new mem- 
bers to Congress. And Ross Perot became 
the highest vote-getter of any third party 
candidate in modern history. 

Fourth, as Dr. Beverly Kelley (professor 
in Comm Arts) notes, women have finally 
broken through the "glass ceiling" in poli- 
tics. Record numbers of women have shown 
they can win the in the U.S. Senate. There- 
fore, women can expect more money and 
support from the national political commit- 
tees, which in die past often ignored women. 

Fifth, there is a mandate to control the 
federal deficit. The deficit is the most sig- 
nificant problem facing the nation.

Wide-angle perspective on CLU faculty 

The quality of the faculty at California 
Lutheran University is valued as one of its 
greatest assets. The emphasis on high qual- 
ity has continued since the university re- 
ceived accreditation only a few months 
after it opened in 1961. 

The distinction of the current faculty is a 
reflection of the priorities set in those early 
years. CLU students obtain a high-caliber 
undergraduate education through interac- 
tion with the faculty of the College of Arts 
and Sciences, the School of Education and 
the School of Business. 

While most students see graduation as 
the ultimate goal of their time at CLU, 
faculty members present a different per- 

spective. For most, their lime on campus is 
only one part of a lifetime of scholarship. 
Dr. Lyle Murley, chair of the English De- 
partment, defines teaching as a "process of 
constant change and growth." 

This special "In-depth" look at the Hu- 
manities and Social Sciences divisions re- 
veal the diverse experiences and accom- 
plishments that lead to growth and quality 
education at CLU. 

The Echo staff has made an effort to 
represent all departments in theses divi- 
sions by interviewing as many faculty mem- 
bers as schedules permitted. Departments 
not covered in this issue will be covered at 
a later date.

Everyday psychology at CLU 

By Amy Anderson 


Back row: Dr. Kirkland Gable, Dr. Steven Kissinger, Dr. Douglas Saddler. 
Front: Dr. Thad Eckman. Or. Julie Kuehnel 

A lava lamp, rats, fish, bizarre artwork 
and furniture are a part of everyday life in 
the Psychology Department. These profes- 
sors each use their own experiences and 
knowledge to educate their students in their 
own, unique way. 

Dr. Julie Kuehnel, associate professor of 
psychology and chair of the department, 
teaches Theories of Personality and Ab- 
normal Psychology. After graduating from 
CLU herself, she went on to receive her 
doctorate at the University of Texas in 
school psychology. 

"1 think that my classes are informal and 
interactive. I like to put the students in 
groups and give then, discussion ques- 

tions. I don't like to stand behind the podium 
and lecture for an hour," Kuehnel said. 

Kuehnel has had many works published. 
Many journals, book chapters and co- 
authoring a book on marriage therapy are 
among her accomplishments. She is a li- 
censed clinical psychologist but finds it hard 
to pursue a private practice with all of her 
other activities. 

"My private practice is very minimal these 
days. I only see old clients that need help." 
Kuehnel commented. 

One of Kuehnel's specialties is child de- 
velopment. She has done a lot of consulting 
for improvements of child care in centercity. 
She has taught effective parenting skills to 
parents that have been referred to the court 
for child abuse, as well as teaching these

From crime and justice to parents and family 

By Laryssa Kreiselmeyer 


Some changes in the Sociology/ Adminis- 
tration of Justice department are expected 
next fall. New classes will be added to meet 
with the Core 21 requirements. The Admin- 
istration of Justice major will be changed to 
Criminal Justice. 

Professor Michael Doyle has been at Cali- 
fornia Lutheran University since 1976. He 
earned his degree in 1975 and started out 
teaching at community and state colleges. 
He has written a chapter titled "The Police 
Culture" for a textbook on law enforcement 
and has co-authored (with Dr. Pam 
Jolicoeur) an article on juvenile crime and 

Doyle surveyed community safety in Simi 
Valley and the effectiveness of automating 
the Ventura County Superior Court. He is 
also the director of the Adult Degree Pro- 
gram that he began with Jolicoeur in 198S. 

He is interested in the effects of alcohol- 
ism and drug abuse in society and would 
like to pursue surveys on these topics. 

Dr. Robert Meadows has worked at CLU 
since 1985. He is from Ohio and has lived in 
California for 20 years. After he earned his 
bachelor degree Meadows became a police 
officer and worked in Los Angeles for four 
years, an experience he described as "excit- 
ing." After working in the field, he became 
a training officer in the Police Academy. 
When Kent State offered him a teaching 
position, he left the police force to teach. 

Since then he has earned a doctorate and 
has published over 20 articles on policing, 
crime and private security. From time to 
time the police department will call him 
with a question as an expert consultant. 
Right now he and some students are re-

searching Ventura County's police offic- 
ers' attitudes toward minorities. Meadows 
would like all students to know that his door 
is open for questions about the criminal 
justice field. 

Jolicoeur has been very busy lately co- 
chairing the Core 21 committee. Although 
she is a professor in the Sociology Depart- 
ment, her work has become primarily ad- 
ministrative over the 20 years she has been 
at CLU. 

She is presently directing her focus more 
on research. With two sociology majors 
and assistant Theresa Madden, she is con- 
ducting a study on the informal care of 

Hispanic elderly. 

Jolicoeur is also looking forward to more 
time in the classroom. Sociology of Reli- 
gion and Social Problems are among the 
courses she teaches. She is also director of 
Summer School. 

She has written an article with History 
Department professor Jonathan Boe on the 
Freshman Advisement Program. She has 
also otherbook on higher education in Cali- 
fornia and how college impacts freshmen 

In the six years that Dr. Hoda Mahmoudi 
has been at CLU, the number of majors in 
the sociology department has increased from 

10 to 25. This semester she says there are 
more applied courses than ever before to 
reflect the new curriculum for Core 21. 

Mahmoudi is originally from Iran. Her 
family was forced to move when she was 10 
years old due to the persecution of her 
family's Baha'i in Iran. Mahmoudi says 
many of the Baha'i have been killed in 
recent years. Another reason for the move 
was Mahmoudi 's father's wish for better 
education for his children. All of the 
Mahmoudi children went on to earn Ph.D. s. 
Mahmoudi became head of the Sociology 
Department 1988. She has published nu- 
merous works and papers. The most recent 
was presented at the American Psychologi- 
cal Association in August 1991. 

Mahmoudi's areas of specialization in- 
clude medical sociology, womens studies 
and peace studies. She has been listed in 
Biography International and Who ' s Who in 
the West. 

Dr. Mary Margaret Thomes commented 
on two aspects of her work at CLU. She is 
a part of the sociology department as well as 
Director of the Graduate Program in Mari- 
tal and Family Therapy. Now in her 24th 
year of teaching at CLU, Thomes instructs 
undergraduates in the sociology of 
the family and graduate students in research 

Thomes is from Minnesota where she 
earned her bachelor degree at a small 
women's college. Her experience in col- 
lege was what drew her to CLU after she left 
the School Social Welfare Department at 
UCLA. While at UCLA she researched the 
family from a systems perspective. 
Thomes, her husband, who is also a soci- 
ologist and another sociologist, wrote a 
book on the American and other cultural

Passion for religious 
studies valuable asset 

By Daniel Kubilos 


Dr. Byron Swanson of the California 
Lutheran University Religion Department 
recently described his chosen career as "de- 

"To read, study and grow," Swanson 
said,"and help students grow is such a joy." 

There is one common theme among pro- 
fessors in this department; they all share a 
passion for their field of study and enjoy 
passing it on through teaching. 

Swanson came to CLU in 1979 and has 
been a full-time college professor his entire 
career, teaching at Midland Lutheran 
Universtiy in Fremont, Nebraska.for 1 1 years 
prior to coming to CLU. 

Swanson's primary interest is liberation 
theology, which has its origins in the expe- 
rience of the oppressed people of Latin 
America. Swanson has traveled "every 
place" in Central America, gaining firsthand 
knowledge of the society that gave rise to 
liberation theology. 

The Center for Global Education of 
Augsburg College has provided Swanson 
with introductions to local communities and 
the opportunity to visit people's homes, 
participate in "base Christian communities" 
(grass roots Bible study groups that are the 
foundation of Liberation Theology) and 
speak to government officials about con- 
cerns of the poor. 

For the last five years that CLU was on the 
interim schedule, Swanson look students on 
travel study trips to different parts of Latin 
America. They visited places where oppres- 

sive poverty is an overwhelming reality. 

"I want students to realize that we are so 
comfortable and so affluent. We are a liny 
minority. The rest of the world's reality is 
of poverty and suffering." 

Swanson wants to help students under- 
stand that the Gospel speaks to the world's 
oppressed and that in order to be respon- 
sive to the needs of soc iely we must first be 
informed. Students interested in studying 
abroad for a semester through the Center 
for Global Education are encouraged to go 
to the Religion Department office (Re- 
gents 12) for information. 

Dr. Jarvis Streeter feels he is as lucky to 
be at CLU."I applied to 35 schools and 
CLU was my first choice." Streeter de- 
cided on teaching as a career after teaching 
in an East African village. 

After graduating from USC with a B.A. 
in sociology, Streeter knew he wanted to 
do some kind of social service and "teach- 
ing was all I was qualified for." He then 
went on to study at Luther Theological 
Seminary, and at Yale University, com- 
pleting a two-year program in one year. 
The following year Streeter studied as a 
Research Fellow at Yale, but elected to 
enter the Ph. D. program at Southern Meth- 
odist Universtiy in order to study under Dr. 
Schubert Ogden, a well known theologian. 

Streeter's dissertation concerned Origi- 
nal Sin and the work of Ernest Becker on 
Human Nature. Streeter continues to be 
interested in this area and recently submit- 
ted an article entitled "Human Nature and 
Human Evil in the Earlier Works

amilies. The book went through four edi- 
tions before it went out of print in accor- 
dance with the authors' wishes. 

In a project for Ventura County Health 
Department that begins in January Thomes 
will research the effectiveness of a new 
program to prevent child abuse. 

Thomses says her calling is to sociology, 
particularly the sociology of the family. 
Briefly, right out of college, she worked as 
a hospital dietitian, but was drawn to a 
profession in which she could earn a doc- 
toral degree. She says she feels as enthusi- 
astic about her field of choice, perhaps even 
more now than she ever has been before. 
Thomes defines sociology as "a disciplined 
way of looking at human life." She sees it as 
a way of looking at the world from a large 
perspective as well as microscopically.

who can pass the information on to people 
in need. She has taught her manner of non- 
violent discipline through workshops all 
over the country. This activity is now re- 
served only for summer and during the 
January break. 

Dr. Kirk land Gable, professor of psychol- 
ogy, is a member of the National Academy 
of Sciences and the Committee to Prevent 
Violence to the President of the United 
States. He is the adviser of the Psychology 
Club, has a private practice, is an inventor, 
lawyer and author all in one. Yet Gable is 
always looking for new ways to make his 
classes interesting and is always finding 
lime for his students. 

"Education is what you have left after you 
have forgotten everything in class. If you 
were to give a test to students six months 
after the course has ended, most of them 
would flunk. I think that what's important is 
teaching people how to learn," Gable said. 

Gable gives prizes for scoring highest on 
a test and for participating well in class. He 
frequently makes phone calls to students to 
thank them for participating or to ask them 
where they were if they were not in class. 
One of his goals is to begin electronic mail 
throughout the campus that would enable 
him to send notes to his students easily. 

Gable has had several books published as 
well as between 40 and 50 articles. He lost 
some of his interest in writing and explains 
that he found it to only be an ego trip. 

"Now I only write things when I think it's 
worthwhile," Gable said. 

Dr. Douglas Saddler, associate professor 
of psychology and director of graduate pro- 
grams in psychology, is the director of the 
graduate program in counseling psychol- 
ogy and conducts a private practice in 
Westlake where he tends to focus on anxi- 
ety and depression through individual 

Saddler conducts his class in a lecture 

formal and appreciates when students ask 

"I believe that participation on the part of 
the student is important and learning through 
discussion and presentations," Saddler com- 

Saddler has done research on how per- 
sonality factors affect academic achieve- 
ment and performance, cognitive factors in 
psychological disorders and plans to re- 
search perfectionism and procrastination in 
the spring. 

Dr. Steven Kissinger, assistant professor 
of psychology, teaches general psychol- 
ogy, experimental psychology and physi- 
ological psychology. 

Kissinger conducts most of his classes in 
a lecture format but tries to get the students 
involved at times through discussions and 
demonstrations. He was voted the Most 
Understanding Teacher by Psi Chi, a stu- 
dent organization 

Kissinger had an experiment published 
on rats and thermal regulation and is hoping 
to start a lab at CLU where students can get 
involved in research thai can be published. 

Kissinger plans on eventually retiring at 
CLU and really enjoys the people and school. 

"I feel like I really fit in with the school 
and the Psychology Department," Kissinger 

Kissinger keeps himself busy off campus 
through the church choir, collecting an- 
tiques, restoring old electronic equipment, 
woodworking and playing the piano and 

Presently Kissinger is looking at the pos- 
sibility of starling a new class, Sensation 
and Perception, in the fall. 

Dr. Barry Barman, assistant professor of 
psychology, is a licensed clinical psycholo- 
gist He is also the director of the Behavior 
Therapy and Family Counseling Clinic. 

Barman's list of research experience in- 
cludes biofeedback training for pain and 
stress -related disorders in children and ado- 
lescents, behavioral pediatrics, the devel- 
opment of short-term treatment programs 
for children who suffer from attention defi- 
cit disorder, child behavior management 
techniques and behavioral medicine. 

Dr. Margot Michels says she "absolutely 
loves leaching. "She recently remarked that 
the worst thing she could imagine as a 
teacher would be "not having any students." 
She has been an assistant professor of 
German and French at California Lutheran 
University since 1986. Michels earned her 
B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. at University of 
California at Los Angeles and has been 
involved in several innovative programs 
since her career began at CLU. She is re- 
gional vice president for the national for- 
eign language honor society, Alpha Mu 

Michels has introduced two new courses 
to the curriculum this year. Business Ger- 
man focuses on learning the language and 
culture of Germany specifically for busi- 
ness majors. This course helps to improve 
international business between the U.S. and 
all German-speaking countries. This course 
also helps with foreign marketing and busi- 
ness correspondence. 

Women in German Literature is designed 

for students with Women's Studies minors 
The literary works are available in both 
German and English. Ironically, most of the 
books are written by men about women. 
The course highlights writers of the 19th 
and 20th centuries. Michels encourages all 
students to lake these classes. 

Students passing the A Building just after 
1 1 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday or Friday 
may wonder about the music and singing 
they hear. It doesn't sound like the usual 
lecture, because it isn't. It's Dr. Walter 
Stewart's Intermediate German class. The 
music and singing is one of his unique 
approaches to learning language. Stewart is 
chair of the Foreign Language Department 
and also an adjunct professor in Philoso- 

Stewart received his bachelors at CSUN 
and his masters and doctorate at UCLA. He 
speaks French, German, Africaans and 
Dutch and specializes in German language 
and literature. 

He has had books, articles and reviews 
published in the areas of philology, phi- 
losophy and folk lore. He writes on work 
Nietzsche, Goethe and structuralism.

There's more to French than France streeter 

'The French language is universal and not limited only to the country of France. ' 

By Briana Kelly and Dana Donley 


Dr. Karen Renick's approach to learning 
foreign language focuses on "experienc- 
ing" language. She presents concepts to her 
French students that give them a wide vari- 
ety of exposure to the French language. 

"The French language is universal," 
Renick explains,"and not limited only to 
the country of France." 

Francophone Studies are an essential as- 
pect of her courses. Francophone, accord- 
ing to Renick, refers to French language 
and influence in other countries of the world . 
Her students are currently reading a Moroc- 
can novel. She also includes plays from 
Canada and literature from Haiti, Algeria 
and Martinique. 

These studies are enhanced through the 
use of Computer Assisted Language Learn- 
ing. She has worked with Dr. Michael 
Kolitsky of the Biological Sciences Depart- 
ment to develop hypermedia presentations. 
She has presented her "interactive video/ 
computer" learning programs at Arizona 
State University in Tempe, Ariz. 

Renick also incorporates creative activity 
into her French curriculum. Her students 
are currently working on calligrams that 
combine original student poetry and art. 
She hopes to finish the projects for submis- 
sion to this year's Morning Glory. 

Renick's personal experience extends to 
other foreign languages and began with 
learning Norwegian from her mother and 
grandmother. She was in an honors pro- 
gram that allowed her to study German at 
the local community college before she 
graduated from high school. 
She has also studied Spanish, Russian and 
Chinese and is a world traveler. Her jour- 
neys have taken her to Western Europe, 
Poland, Russia, Morocco, and Egypt. She 
was also part of a CLU faculty travel study 
group that recently toured Hong Kong, 
China and Japan.

Streeter manages to keep working on his 
scholarship while satisfying the adminis- 
trative demands of being the Chair of the 
Religion Department. 

Streeter sites two goals he has for the 
Religion Department: "Greater diversity in 
terms of the personal expertise of faculty," 
and "to have specialists in all the major 
fields" of academic religious study. 

He would like to see the Religion Depart- 
ment expand the perspectives of the student 
body and bring students to a "greater aware- 
ness and appreciation of the various reli- 
gious traditions." 

Dr. Joseph Everson is an acknowledged 
authority on Biblical Studies who wants 
very much to challenge students to think 
about "what they believe." Everson ' s schol- 
arship focuses on prophetic theology. "I 
live and work in the world of prophets and 
social justice," he said. 

After earning his B.A. from St. Olaf Col- 
lege, Everson was awarded a University 
Fellowship at the University at Heidelberg 
in Germany. There, his interest in Old Tes- 
tament studies was greatly influenced by 
Gerhard von Rad, who wrote the two-vol- 
ume "Old Testament Theology." Everson 
has foil wed his mentor's example, publish- 
ing extensively in the field of prophetic 
theology. He wrote The "Day of the Lord" 
section of "The Interpreter's Dictionary of 
the.Bible: Supplementary Volume" and is 
mentioned in the new "Anchor Bible Dic- 
tionary," 1992 for his contribution to re- 
search on the subjectof the Day of the Lord. 
Everson is writing two books that will be 
part of the Augsburg Adult Bible Study 
series to be published by Augsburg Fortress 

Everson's past leaching experience in- 
cludes working at Luther College and at the 
Graduate School of St. John's University 
where he also directed a summer graduate 
school seminar in Israel. 

In addition to his teaching and writing 
Everson is active with Jewish-Christian dia- 
logue groups. In 1987 he chaired the pro- 
gram committee for the 1 0th National Work- 
shop on Jewish-Christian relations, and in 
the summer of 1991 was a speaker at the 
International Conference of Christians and 
Jews Colloquium held in Southampton, En- 

For all his scholarly accomplishments, 
Everson does not work in an ivory tower. 
He stresses that die prophets raise the "ques- 
tions of justice" for our own lime.

of language and more 

By Briana Kelly 

Professor James F. Fonseca has been 
teaching foreign languages for forty years. 
Since 1965, Fonseca has held the position 
of Spanish professor at CLU. 

He received his B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. at 
UCLA. For his bachelors and masters de- 
grees, his major was Spanish and his minors 
were French and Italian. His doctorate ma- 
jor was in Spanish also, but his minor was 

Fonseca specializes in literature of 19th 
century Spain, and has taught at five Chris- 
tian liberal arts colleges. After teaching at 
Simi Valley High School for one year, 
Fonseca taught at Ripon College in Wis- 
consin, Willamette University in Oregon, 
and then Occidental and Redlands before 
he came to CLU in 1965. 

In college, Fonseca was a Phi Beta Kappa 
fraternity member. Presently, he is the fac- 
ulty advisor for CLU'schapter of Alpha Mu 
Gamma, the foreign language honor soci- 
ety. From 1979-83, Fonseca was the Na- 
tional President for Alpha Mu Gamma. He 
now has a permanent position on the Na- 
tional Executive Council for this organiza- 

Fonseca was also on the Board of Direc- 
tors of the Esperanto League for North 
America from 1987-90. Esperanto is a com- 
mon language, which originated in Poland 
about a hundred years ago. It combines 
many of the European languages into one 
common, simplified language. 

Fonseca became involved in the interna- 
tional language in 1979, when he attended 
the organization's national convention. He 
has written a basic introduction to Espe- 
ranto, which he calls "A Birds Eye View of 


Fonseca says the importance of an inter- 
national language is that, "It allows two 
nations to come together on common ground 
and speak through a politically and socially 
neutral language." Fonseca went to a con- 
vention on Esperanto this summer of 1992 
in Vienna. 'This language can foster com- 
munication between different nations," he 

Fonseca has taken two sabbaticals since 
he began teaching, one being to Lavalc, 
Canada where he studied Spanish. 

In addition, this semester Fonseca is tak- 
ing a beginning course in Swedish, taught 
by CLU junior Charlotte Dahlberg. 

Presently Fonseca devotes most of his 
time to teaching and the Esperanto League. 
He hopes the language will gain in popular- 
ity so communication between nations will 
be improved.

Tonsing frequently lectures on these sub- 
jects at universities and churches and re- 
cently delivered a public lecture for The 
Institute of Antiquity and Christianity at the 
Claremont Colleges on an aspect of Early 
Christian Art. 

Tonsing is an avid musician, a one-time 
surfer, a backpacker, camper and enjoys 
theater. On Dec. 9 students and faculty are 
encouraged to go to the Preus-Brandt Fo- 
rum performance of The Santa Lucia Festi-

Tonsing is currently the vice president of 
The American Scandinavian Foundation in 
Thousand Oaks. 

Dr. Paul Egertson came to CLU in 1 979 as 
the director of a partnership program. He 
has organized various Lutheran churches 

throughout the Southwest Every year in 
July he organizes the Theological Acad- 
emy of the West The academy is a one 
week event that draws attendants from all 
over the west, often accompanied by their 
families. This directorship has given 
Egertson the opportunity to travel to differ- 
ent parts of the country. He resigned from 
this directorship in 1992. 

Egertson is a part time pastor at St. 
Mathews Lutheran Church in North Holly- 
wood in addition to his teaching all the 
Adult Degree Evening Program religion 
100 classes. He was awarded the ADEP 
outstanding professor award in 1987. 

The newest addition to the Religion De- 
partment faculty is Dr. Deborah Sills, who 
came to CLU in 1990. 

Sills' primary interest is in the history of 
religions. She did her doctoral work on 
modem Jewish history and patterns of Jew- 
ish historiology and continues work in that 
area. S he will present a paper at the Novem- 
ber 1992 meeting of the American Acad- 
emy of Religion to be held in San Francisco 
entitled "Vicious Rumors: Moseic Narra- 
tives in First Century Alexandria." 

"My interest in religion allows 
me to use many disciplines. " 

Sills' teaching experience is extensive. 
She has taught at the Universby of Colo- 
rado, the University of Florida at Gainsville, 
Concordia and The Uni verstiy of Califor- 
nia Santa Barbara. 

"My interest in religion allows me to use 
many disciplines," said Sills. She points out 
that religion has a pervasive effect at all 
levels of culture. Sills' involvement in start- 
ing the Humanities Colloquium attests to 
her commitment to multidiscipline, cross- 
cultural approaches to education. 

"If I were to get evangelical in any way," 
Sills said.'it would be to require cross- 
cutural religious understanding at the un- 
dergraduate level." The importance Sills 
gives to the cross-cultural approache to the 
study of religion has a very practical ex-

Making philosophical study relevant to life 

'We study ethics not to know what goodness is, but to become good ourselves.' 

By Rhonda Burt and Philosophy Dept. 


The Philosophy Department has made 
many changes in the past few years to achieve 
new goals. With the changes that have been 
made in the new catalogue, the department 
expanded this year to include three full time 
faculty members. Dr. Nathan Tiemey, Dr. 
William Bersley and Dr. Xiang Chen. Each 
has a different background and different 
specialty that enhances the department with 
a wide range of ideas and courses. 

Dr. Walter Stewart, foreign language de- 
partment chair, is also an adjunct professor 
of philosophy. He teaches several philoso- 
phy courses each year that that are of special 
interest to himself, as well as students. 

One of the department goals is to create 
classes that will reach a broader variety of 
students. Courses are offered with the hope 
that students will apply the knowledge they 
gain in their own lives. The other major goal 
of the department is to create a wider variety 
of upper-division courses for philosophy 
majors and minors. 

Tiemey grew up in Australia and received 
his Ph.D in philosophy in 1989 from Co- 
lumbia University in New York. He came to 
California Lutheran University in Septem- 
ber 1990 and is chair of the Philosophy 
Department Social Ethics, Business Eth- 
ics, Metaphysics and Existentialism and the 
Individual are among the courses he teaches. 

Tiemey also team teaches the Humanities 
Tutorial course with Dr. Melvyn Haberman 
of the English Department. 

His main areas of research interest are 
ethics and the philosophy of psychoanaly- 
sis. While he values theoretical understand- 
ing very highly, he believes that we live in 
an age when philosophy is called on more 
and more to make itself relevant to people 
in all walks of life. Taking Aristotle's dic- 
tum seriously that "we study ethics not to 
know what goodness is, but to become 
good ourselves." Tiemey has an active en- 
gagement with questions in business eth- 
ics, as well as other areas of professional 
and social life. 

Bersley has taught at CLU for many years. 
He received his doctorate at the University 
of Colorado as an NDEA Fellow. He has 
served as parish pastor and campus pastor 
at Black Hills State College. Ethics and 
Contemporary Philosophy are among the 
courses he leaches. His specializations in- 
clude contemporary existentialism and en- 
vironmental philosophy. Bersley's current 
research is in the philosophy of humor and 
holographic theory. He has spoken exten- 
sively on the healing aspects of laughter. 
His hobbies include running, TaiChiChuan, 
singing, drumming and travel. 
Chen arrived at CLU this semester. He

their parents. Many of the parents become 
tutors and the children often pursue further 
education at USC. 

Wines says she "sees the participants 
gain pride in their accomplishments and 
become empowered by their abilities." The 
knowledge gained by her experience with 
these students transfers to her teaching 
approaches in courses at CLU. 

In addition to her teaching at CLU and 
USC Wines has completed a manuscript 
on the effects of loss and mourning in 
Aldous Huxley's works. She also writes 
poetry, children's literature and has had 
plays produced in Canada in the 1970s. 

Schwarz has a special interest in ethnic 
minorities that are under represented in 
literature and has focused recently on non- 
western writers. His search for an experi- 
ence in a "completely different literary 
tradition from the usual European or Ameri- 
can standard" led him to the University of 
the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji, last spring 
for his sabbatical. 

While in the island country, Schwarz 
became aware of a "strong connection" 
between the literature of the South Pacific 
and Native American literature. He is "fas- 
cinated with aculture that ironically moved 
from being oppressed (by British colonials) 

to being the oppressor (of the Indians)." He 
suggests that further research on the topic 
might include a closer look at Native Ameri- 
can, Australian Aboriginal and New Zealand 
Maori literature. 

Schwarz sees teaching as a "lifelong learn- 
ing process" and looks forward to the op- 
portunity to apply the knowledge he gains 
to classroom settings. 

Several other professors have an interest 
in the area of ethnic literature. Dr. Janice 
Bowman is also intrigued with works by 
authors who are members of oppressed 
societies. She names "resistance literature" 
as her specialty and cites an experience 
during her involvement with the Civil Rights 
movement of the '60s as the "epiphany" 
that made her realize her intentions were 
not just "a passing interest." She plans to 
write an article on ethnic writers for journal 
publication in the near future. 

Aside from her study in the area of litera- 
ture, Bowman also writes poetry . Her poem 
"The Shining of All Griefs" appeared in 
Valparaiso University's "Cresset" in Sep- 
tember of this year. She has always written 
poetry, but has "disciplined" herself in the 
last few years to allow more time to pursue 
publication. She admits that discipline may 
not be the correct reference and points out 
that "poetry writing is a break from the 
analytical part of leaching and grading pa- 
pers" and provides freedom for creativity.

Consistent journal writing, according to 
Bowman, nourishes that creativity and ulti- 
mately reflects in her teaching. 

Dr. Susan Corey addresses her study in 
the area of ethnic literature to spirituality 
and feminist theology with special atten- 
tion to fiction written by black women. She 
defines feminist theology as the study of the 
relationship of women to God or the higher 
power of a culture. Corey says the study of 
women's experiences is a source of theo- 
logical understanding from a female per- 
spective. She studies authors such as Alice 
Walker, Toni Morrison and Gloria Naylor, 
and has recently submitted several articles 
to journals. 

English as a Second Language is another 
area of current attention for Corey. She has 
worked with Dr. Penny Cefola in develop- 
ing a teaching model for ESL classes. Their 
model was presented at the Los Angeles 
Regional Teachers of English to Speakers 
of Other Languages Conference in Los 
Angeles in 1991 and received a superior 

Cefola's pursuit of knowledge began in 
her native country, Thailand, and led her to 
the United Stales. Her move to Washington 
D.C., to pursue a graduate education as an 
independent single woman was an unusual 
one for an Asian woman. She was deter- 
mined to reach her goals, regardless of her 
family's expectations for her to marry and 
be a proper Asian wife. 

Cefola worked her way through graduate 
school as a translator for the CIA in Wash- 
ington D.C., and remembers that during 
those years, when people questioned why 
she wasn't married she replied, "I'm al- 
ready married to the English language." 

Although she did eventually marry, her 
love of the language continued and her 
efforts to increase her knowledge of lan- 
guage are ongoing. She teaches ESL courses 
and is pleased with the growth of the ESL 
program at CLU. Cefola said she would like 
to "cultivate the program to its full potential 
for future students." 

Publishing a collection of short stories 
and folk tales from Southern Asia is on her 
list of current projects along with teaching 
herself Cambodian in order to prepare ma- 
terials for publication of a Southeast Asian 
grammar text for ESL teachers of Southeast 
Asian refugees. 

Following her interest in language, Cefola 
is studying to increase her fluency in the 
Chinese language in preparation for her 
sabbatical next fall in China. She will be 
teaching ESL courses at Zhongshan Uni- 
versity in Guahgzhov, Southern China and 
doing research in Chinese linguistics. 

A program co-chair of the Los Angeles 
Regional TESOL organization she has pre- 
sented numerous papers at conferences with 
one scheduled this November. 

Dr. Marsha Markman's scholarship in- 
cludes courses and study in a variety of 
areas. She's presently completing research 
on women who were victims of the Holo- 
caust. Her sources include diaries and mem- 

oirs of women who were in concentration 
camps, ghcuos, in hiding or part of the 
Resistance. Markman taught "The Holo- 
caust in Literature and Film" as a CLU 
interim course and also at the University of 
Maryland in College Park, Maryland and at 
the George Washington University in Wash- 
ington D.C. She and her daughter-in-law 
Jana Anderson, who is working on a 
Master's at California State University 
Northridge, are also compiling an anthol- 
ogy of Holocaust poetry. 

Markman considers topics of a distinctly 
different nature in her courses on children's 
literature and has recently authored several 
children's books. One book. "What Do You 
See in the Sky?"is scheduled for distribu- 
tion in August 1993. She enjoys teaching 
classes in composition, business communi- 
cations and a course which focuses on 
methods of teaching writing to children 
grades K-12. 

A new face in the English Department 
this semester brings professional writing 
experience into the business communica- 
tions classes at CLU. La Donna Harrison's 
expertise reflects in her course presenta- 
tions. Her interaction with the local profes- 
sional community through writing semi- 
nars keeps her current on the application of 
writing skills in the business area. 

Dr. Melvyn Haberman has special liter- 
ary interest in Charles Dickens and has 
completed manuscripts on his novels in the 
past, but his current study o^als with film. 
He has documented his theory on the por- 
trayal of violence in film in a manuscript 
that is in final revision. Haberman used his 
knowledge in the computer area to enhance 
his cinema course. His use of hypermedia 
allows students to analyze forms and styles 
of motion picture production. Haberman 
also team leaches the Humanities Tutorial 
course with Dr. Nathan Tierney of the Phi- 
losophy Department. 

An in-depth look at faculty academic in- 
terests within the English Department 
wouldn't be complete without the mention 
of Dr. Ted Labrenz and Dr. Jack Ledbetter 
who are often mistakenly identified as each 

"I don't know if it's because our names 
both begin with the same letter, we taught at 
the same high school and came to CLU 
about the same time, we're about the same 
height and age, or maybe it's because we 
both teach American Lit," Labrenz ex- 
plained," but, people seem to get us con- 
fused with each other." Although Labrenz 
pointed out one distinguishing factor, for 
the purposes of this article, these professors 
are best identified as the dramatist and the 

Labrenz's accomplishments in 
playwrighting includes earning the Phelan 
Award in Drama for two of his plays. He has 
published reviews in the past, but his cur- 
rent area of interest is a new concept in 
playwrighting at CLU. The English/Drama 
469 course offered this semester is one that 
Labrenz and Ken Gardner of the Drama 
Department hope will be a success. The 
course has been offered before, but Labrenz 
said students taking the course this semes- 
ter will have a more complete dramatic 
experience because some will have the op-

portunity to have their one-act plays pro- 
duced by Gardner's directing class with 
parts played by the acting class. Labrenz is 
focusing on individual conferences with 
student playwrights and is positive about 
the results that will be presented in the Little 
Theatre on Dec.8 and 10. Labrenz also 
teaches fiction writing and literature. 

The name synonymous with poetry is 
Ledbetter who has been published in more 
journals than it's possible to list in this 
article. His most recent writing has ap- 
peared in "Nimrod International Journal of 
Prose and Poetry/Fall-Winter 1992." pub- 
lished by the Arts and Humanities Council 
of Tulsa, "Merton Seasonal/October 1992," 
published by Bellarmine College, Louis- 
ville, Ky., and in the summer 1992 special 
essay edition of "The MacGuffin," pub- 
lished by Schoolcraft College, Lavonia, 

"Faulkner in Suburbia," an essay in the 
"MacGuffiin" is about his experience teach- 
ing a Faulkner class (presumably) at CLU, 
although he is discreet with his use of names 
to protect the innocent. 

Ledbetter identifies Robert Frost, Emily 
Dickinson and Wall Whitman as the three 
poets he favors. He also has an special in 
Thomas Merton. His altitude toward his 
poetry is reflected in his advice to students 
who may be considering submission of 
poetry: "Don't bother unless you're pre- 
pared to fail and be ready to work harder 
than you've ever worked in your entire 

Ledbetter teaches literature and 

compostition courses, as well as creative 
writing and poetry. He looks forward to 
selected topic courses, such as the Robert 
Frost course he will teach next semester, 
because it allows him to focus on one spe- 
cific author. He has traveled to New En- 
gland to experience the farm where Robert 
Frost did much of his writing. 

Like writing poetry, teaching is hard work 
and it requires dedication and goal selling, 
according to Dr. Lyle Murley, chair of the 
English Department. "You have to enjoy 
scholarship," he explained," reading critics 
and other scholars who have investigated 
certain areas of literature." 

Murley enjoys doing research because it 
allows him to understand and look at writ- 
ers on their own terms and this insight 
enhances his teaching in class. He prefers lo 
direct his study toward a goal of presenta- 
tion in the classroom oral a scholarly meet- 
ing, rather lhan pursuing publication. 

He enjoys teaching selected topic courses 
because it gives him the opportunity to do 
selective research. Most of his classes are 
related to literature prior to 1700 such as 
Shakespeare, Milton, Chaucer. Murley is 
known for his preference for Milton, but is 
doing a rhetorical study of Erasmus, a 
scholar of the 1 5th and 1 6th centuries. He is 
studying how Erasmus presents folly and 
peace as individuals who have clear points 
of view. 

Each faculty member has a personal schol- 
arly interest, but the shared goal of quality 
teaching is the English Department's con- 
tribution to education at CLU.

The kings of rock vs. the king of the ranch 

Rockers, Bon Jovi & Rancher, Garth Brooks both release new disc's- who rules? 

By Micah Reitan 


Back in seventh grade I loved a girl 
named Cede Robinson. She was the most 
beautiful girl in the world. Sometimes I'd 
walk her home after school. At her front 
door she'd tell me, "No! I'm waiting for 
Jon Bon Jovi to ask me to marry him." At 
that time I was like, "Jon Bon what? M 

In eighth grade I began dating my high 
school flame who wouldn't listen to any- 
one but this Jon dude. We almost broke up 
over seeing his gig in Phoenix. 

Four years have gone and I find myself 
in my dorm room with Bon Jovi 's new CD 
"Keep the Faith," blowing my ear drums 

As I check out this disc, memories come 
back. I don ' t know what happened to Cede. 
And my "high school flame" would rather 
die than look at me. Wow! A lot has 
changed since then, but one thing remains 
the same. Bon Jovi can still rock! 

The "not too commercial," 12-song al- 
bum is great! This is American rock 'n' roll 
at its finest. This is Bon Jovi ! Jon has an ear 
for melodies, and guitarist, Richie 
Sambora, has a voice for harmonies. The 
two form one of today's best rock duos. 
This is another Jon and Richie project. 
updated Bon Jovi. There arel2 brand new 
songs that don't sound like past efforts! 
The ballad's melodies are as trademark as 
ever. Lyrically, it's different The album's 
more about "living life" than about 
"women," and "love," as pastprojects have 
been. It's very positive. It'll take you back 
to your "innocent" pre-college/adult years 

Is Bon Jovi back on top to stay? 

when life was how it should be... simple 
and fun! 

REASON TO CRY: This disc took a 
couple listens to convince me that this is 
worthy of past Bon Jovi works. It's not as 
good as "Slippery When Wet." But it's 
much better than "New Jersey." Songs, "If 
I was Your Mother," "Fear," and "Women 
in Love," don't do Bon Jovi true justice. 
THE FINAL WORDS: The kings of rock 
are back! If they could run the country half 
as well as they rock it, I'd have voted Jon 
Bon Jovi presidency, and Richie Sambora 
V.P. Straight forward, "petal to the metal," 
"nothin' but a good time," "tear your heart 
out" American rock 'n' roll! They're back! 

Is "The Chase" Brooks curtain call? 

The "King of Country," Garth Brooks, 
releases what rumors claim his final album, 
"The Chase." For the ordinary man," who 
is responsible for literally blowing out tele- 
phone circuit boards all across American 
the day that his concert tickets go on sale, 
the big question maybe, "Is The Chase' a 
proper grand finale for the country king?" 

Simply stated, "Yes." 

The 10-track disc starts with the upbeat 
southern gospel track, "We Shall Be Free." 
It's a surprise first track. It's good. The light 
hearted second track "Somewhere Other 
Than The Night," returns Brooks to what 
made him the most successful country singer 
the past few years. 

"Mr. Right," is a jazzy "hoe-down'' coun- 
try tune, foreshadowing the possibility that 
"The Chase" is Brooks most musically di- 
verse album. 

Ballads, "Every Now and Then," and 
"Learning to Live Again" are great sing- 
along songs and have nice guitar chord 
progressions. To continue the possibility 
that this disc is his most diverse yet, he lays 
down a rather slow Memphis blue tune that 
goes by the name, "Walking After Mid- 
night." "Dixie Chicken" picks up the speed 
so you can do a little "Country Swingin'." 

But the disc last three tracks bring the 

singer back to the Brooks sound of old' 

Straight forward country for the country 


REASON TO BUY: Yep, this is his most 

musically diverse disc. "Every Now and 

Then," is his best song on this disc. I liked 

all of the songs. Each song has its own 

personality. The diversity of this disc will 

attract new fans (like me). It's very heart 

and soul. 

REASON TO CRY: Even though I'm not 

BIG on country. There isn't much I didn't 

like. "No Fences," contain his best efforts. 

"Friends in Low Places," and "Unanswered 

Prayer," are his best songs. Nothing on this 

disc matches those two. 

THE FINAL WORDS: I understand why 

this guy blew out the phone circuit board 

and had over 1 5,000 people stand in line for 

a chance at 8,000 tickets to see this guy in 

my hometown of Tucson. My town hasn't 

seen a desire for any tickets like this since 

the season after U of A went to the Final 

Four and Sean Elliot said he was returning 

for his senior year! Garth Brooks is the 

Elvis of country! 

'A mighty fortress' is the CLU orchestra and choir 

1992 Fall concert shines for orchestra-- great debut for new choir director, Morton 

By Micah Reitan 


The 1992 Fall Concert featuring the CLU 
Chamber Orchestra and Choir, held on Sat- 
urday, Nov. 1 , showcased some of the most 
talented musicians this school has to offer. 

The concert in Samuel son Chapel began 
with the Chamber Chior performing 
Chistoph W. Gluck's relaxing "Overture to 
"Iphigenia in Aulis." Chamber Orchestra. 

Diana Schafer Yao, professional bassoon- 
ist and teacher since theage of 15, joined the 
28-member Orchestra during "Andante and 
Hungarian Rondo," Opus 35 by Car Maria 
von Weber. Through this piece Yao's flaw- 

less marathon solo stunned the audience 
that applauded so long that she returned to 
give a second bow. 

The Chamber Orchestra concluded the 
first half of the concert with Joseph Haydn's 
"Symphony No. 99." They performed all 
four moments. I felt the Orchestra pre- 
formed this long piece of music very well. 
The tunes were very strong. The Finale: 
"Vivace" was very moving. 

The 64-member CLU Choir under new 
director, Wyant Morton, "made a joyful 
noise to the Lord" as they "shook the 
temple" with Martin Luther's, "A Mighty 
Fortress is Our God." It was indeed a 

mighty number to begin the second half of 
the evening off with. 

The Choir went on to do Nickolaus 
Decius' "Lamb of God," and "Cantate 
Domino" by Heinrich Schutz, before doing 
Egil's Hovland's "Saul," which tells the 
story of Saul's persecution of Christians 
and the "Church." This piece was very 
different then most choir numbers. This 
song had a narration backed by the choir 
chants, which came off as though you were 
listening to a religious group speaking in 

"Guds Soon har gjort meg fri" ("God Son 
has made me free") passed before we were 
given a chance to hear the men sing "Down 

in the Valley" followed by "He's Gone 
Away," by the women. 

The Choir came back together to back up 
tenorShawn Ives, "Ain'tGot Time to Die," 
before closing up their half of the very 
impressive, relaxing and enjoyable concert 
with "Beautiful Savior, featuring soloist 
soprano Laurie Nelson on the second verse. 

The choir has improved since last year. 
Wyant Morton's enthusiasm came across 
in a concert that seemed to be more on the 
contemporary side than past concerts. He 
seems very in touch with the choir, giving 
mem more contemporary arrangements and

Screaming Trees a young 
band on the rise to fame 



"Late Nighi with David Leilerman" and 
the new film "Singles" are feolh favorites 
college audiences. Lately, those two pop 
phenomena have something in common: 
Screaming Trees. 

Those who caught David Letterman in 
late October were treated to the dry -wilted 
host's reaction to Screaming Trees as they 
tore through (and wore) pumpkins, de- 
scribed ham as "just trail mix for us" and 
basically created a mess. 

"I don't know, Paul," Letterman said. 
"They were really great, but they scare me." 

"The Trees were on tour in New York in 
support of their new album, "Sweet 
Oblivion." Guitarist Lee Conner spoke with 
The Vermillion recently as he prepared to 
leave New York for another leg of the tour. 

"I knew that would get a reaction out of 
him ," said Trees guitarist Lee Conner about 
the trail mix comment "He saw a couple of 
really big guys going after the food, and I 
knew he would say something. He always 
does that" 

Screaming Trees got their start in the 
quiet backwater ofEUensburg, Wash., where 
vocalist Mark Lanegan, Conner, and his 
brother, bassist Van Connner started jam- 
ming together. Original drummer Mark 
Pickerel is still in Ellensburg. He runs a 
record store next to the Conner's parents' 
video shop. 

"I'm sure it's gotta be tough now," said 
Conner of the current musical competition 
in Seattle. 

"Starting a band there must be hell. Just 
trying to find rehearsal space is hard, even 
for us. A lot of the clubs don't want to hire 
bands they don't know, and there must be 
more bands per capita there than anywhere 
"The up side is that there are a lot of bands 
doing their own thing. There's a ton of 
original music up there." 

Doggonit, Drama just 
doesn't have a clue 

In 1984, Screaming Trees recorded a 
demonstration tape, which got the attention 
of Ray Farrell of SST Records. The band 
was signed to the label and in 1987 released 
it's first SST album, "Even If And Espe- 
cially When." The Trees switched labels in 
1990, signing with Epic. "Sweet Oblivion" 
is the band's second full album for Epic, 
following 199 l's "Uncle Anesthesia." 

"Musically, signing with Epic has had no 
effect on us," said Conner, "except that we 
had more money to spend on our records. 
We had to spend more, because producers, 
studios and everything else are really in- 
flated as far as prices go. 

"Artistically, though, the label didn't 
make any difference. We could have done 
this record with SST pretty much the same 
except for the quality of the production and 

"We're really not part of a scene or sound 
or anything," Conner said in explaining the 
band's sound. "A lot of bands get together 
and say 'We want to sound just like Nir- 
vana or just like Pearl Jam.' We just play 
our own stuff. Everyone has influences, but 
I don't think that we sound like any one 

The new album was a change in as much 
as the sons were written over a three-month 
period prior to recording. Before this. 
Screaming Trees had collected material 
from several lime periods, then recorded 
the best of the group. 

Screaming Trees received an unexpected 
boost earlier this year when the song "Nearly 
Lost You" was included on the soundtrack 
of Cameron Crowe's film "Singles." Ac- 
cording to Conner, the soundtrack was a 
terrific break. 

"I really think it has helped us. I mean, it 
sold like over a million copies," Conner 
said. The band's last album sold about 
50,000 copies. "It's weird to think of that 
many people having an album with one of 
our songs on it in their house

Who is the "Real Inspector Hound"? Or 

more importantly who killed whom or what, 
when, where and why? Exactly. The "Real 
Inspector Hound" isaplaybyTomStoppard 
which delves deeply into this uuer chaos. 
One might call it, "Siskel and Ebert meet 
The Twilight Zone." 
The show opens as two theater critics find 
their seats, and ends in mayhem. In be- 
tween is complete insanity, with a murder, 
a homicidal wheelchair driver, a killer, and 
of course, inspector hound. 

What results from this motley crew is a 
sinister game of musical chairs with more 

murder and more mayhem. 

It is definitely a well-written show with 
many twists and turns, "but it has a begin- 
ning, a middle and I have no doubt it will 
prove to have an end. For this let us give 
thanks, and double thanks for a good clean 
show without a trace of smut." It does 
promise to be a jolly good show, and guar- 
anteed fun for all. 

"The Real Inspector Hound" is playing a 
double bill with "After Magritte," also writ- 
ten by Stoppard, and both are directed by 
Ken Gardner. 

Performances are scheduled Nov. 12 
through Nov. 14 at 8 p.m.. and Nov. 19 
through Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22 
is a matinee. Curtain is at 2 p.m. 

Redford's 'River,' has 
worthwhile message 

By Mike Gertchokcff 


If you can handle a good old dose of 
family values and enjoy beautiful scenery, 
then "A River Runs Through It" is a movie 
you should definately see. The Columbia 
Pictures release was directed by Academy 
Award winner Robert Redford. 

Set in the gorgeous mountains of Mon- 
tana in the early 1900s the film stars two 
young brothers played by Craig Sheffer 
and Brad Pitt who grow up in a family 
where only two things matter in I i fe, church 
and fly fishing. Their father (Tom Skerritt) 
is a minister for the local church and a 
stem disciplinarian. 

If Norman (Sheffer) and Paul (Pitt) 
weren't busy pleasing their father, they 
were fishing or would sometimes sneak 
into town to see the whore houses. 

When their childhood ended, Norman 
and Paul drifted from home. Norman went 
to college and Paul became a newspaper 
reporter. The boys became young men. 

The movie's message begins to take 

shape when Norman gets his degree and 
is unsure of what he wants to do. He 
returns home and discovers that his 
brother has changed. 

Norman has been away for a while 
and soon realizes that nothing perfect 
lasts forever, except your memories. 

The peaceful memories of the past no 
longer applied to the lives of Norman 
and Paul. As adults they were two very 
different people and the understanding 
between them was gone. 
The point of the film, wonderfully nar- 
rated by Redford as the character of 
Norman, is that you can love a person 
without completely understanding the 
person you love. 

Norman, who hoped to be an English 
professor, disliked the fact that his 
younger brother has become a reckless 
reporter who drank just a little too much, 
but the unity of being brothers never 
ceased to exist. 

Norman still loved his brother and 
saw the good in him. Paul still loved his 
older brother and saw the good in him.

Men's cross country team to 
compete in regionals this week 

By Vanessa Martin 


After a tough season ending with a record 
of 1 -7 in conference, the men's cross coun- 
try team is working hard to improve for the 
NCAA Western Regionals. 

The team will be participating in the 
NCAA Western Regionals on November 
14 at Mills College in Oakland. CLU will 
face the tough competition of the SCIAC 
and other independent Division III schools. 

Matt Griffin, in his second year as coach, 
feels that his team will fair well against 
these other teams in the Regionals and 
continuously supports his runners. 

"If both Bobby Wiley and Jukka Sitanen 
(CLU newcomers) run excellent races, then 

they both have a chance to qualify for the 
individual races at the Nationals," said Grif- 

Griffin is content with this season, but is 
looking to strengthen his team for next year. 

"If the runners run track and train hard 
during the off-season, they will come into 
next season much improved," said Griffin. 

The team will indeed be training hard in 
the next two weeks by practicing a "taper- 
down workout" which involves intense 
training that decreases before the date of 

Griffin reflects upon the season as one 
that will definitely improve in time. "I look 
back at it as a building season. Even though 
my runners are young, they've improved 
steadily," said Griffin. 

CLU's athletic fields, facilities 
need to be improved -- soon 

Interested in playing tennis ? 

For anyone interested in playing for the Kingsmen tennis team, 
there will be an important meeting... 

Thursday, Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Athletic Office 

For more information regarding the men's tennis team 
please contact Herb Rapp at 494-7979 

Let's face it, CLU doesn't have suffi- 
cient athletic facilities. Not only domost 
coaches and athletes agree, the NCAA 
voting committee does. 

Since joining the NCAA Division III 
and the Southern California Intercolle- 
giate Athletic Conference, CLU has been 
denied hosting playoffs last season in 
basketball, men's and women's soccer 
and baseball. And so far this season the 
soccer teams again were denied. ..why? 

Well, it's not because the teams aren't 
good enough or ranked atop the nation's 
elite. In fact, last season the baseball 
team was ranked No. 1 in the nation and 
had to travel to UC San Diego. This 
doesn't sound right. 

How about this season you ask? Well 
the Regals soccer team, ranked No. 3 in 
the Far West Region had to travel to 
UCSD as well. The Tritons weren't 
ranked higher, in fact the Regals had 
already defeated the Tritons earlier in the 
season 2-0 at UCSD, until the playoffs 
when the Regals lost 3-2. 
The reason UCSD hosts in the playoffs 
is because UCSD has fabulous athletic 

Thousand Oaks High School and Simi 
Valley High School's athletic facilities 
both put CLU's to shame as well. This is 
ridiculous when your local high schools 

Rick W. Wilson 
Sports Editor 

have much better athletic facilities. 

I know the coaches and players really 
aren't in the best position to keep asking 
"WHEN is this so called North Campus 
Athletic Complex going to arrive," but I 
am. When is this thing going to begin? Or 
is it? Many students feel it is all a scam. 
And I bet that many coaches, professors, 
alumni and boosters feel the same way. 

Now comes a question, let's all be hon- 
est with ourselves even if we have friends 
that play another sport. 

Football is the priority sport on the CLU 
campus, many students and coaches put 
hours and hours in to make the football 
program work. It is also the school's top 
revenue sport. The team is young and is 
improving each game and each season 
and will soon be making the playoffs, 
what is going to happen when the football 
team is denied, will the football alumni 
startup? Nobody really knows the answer 
until it happens, let's not let it 
happen. ..Chancellor Jerry Miller-: (Miller 
is in charge of the capital programs now.)

By Charlie Flora 


Sprawled out on ihe sidelines, clutching 
his knee and screaming in pain, Cassidy 
O'Sullivan was beginning to learn that 
homecoming football games are not among 
his favorite. 

Playing starting quarterback in a home- 
coming game two years ago. O'Sullivan 
dropped back in the pocket looking for an 
open receiver and boom , he was tweaked — 
nailed high and low by two La Verne in- 
coming defensive lineman. O'Sullivan in- 
jured the interior cruciate ligament of his 
left knee in this game. 

This year's Oct. 17 homecoming game 
against Occidental may have been different 
in the circumstances — O'Sullivan playing 
starting tailback instead of quarterback — 
but after his football cleat got stuck in the 
grass as he was drilled from the side, the 
result was no different — another injury. 

Same Mt. Clef stadium. Another 
Kingsmen homecoming football game 
Maybe he should have known. After all, 
this was the second time he was injured in 
a homecoming contest So then maybe he 
should have stayed home. Watched the tra- 
ditional parade and game on TV. Enjoy the 
picnic in the park. Anticipate plans for the 
big dance. You know, play it safe. 
By the same token, maybe he should have 
let his knee and ankle swell up to balloon 
size after his most recent injury. Be com- 
fortable in knowing his team's subsequent 
loss was partially because he could no longer 

ButO'Sullivan.byhisown choice, vowed 
to block out the pain and play on after sitting 
out for only a few minutes. The Kingsmen 
went on to win in overtime, 17-14. 

"I just set all the pain out of my mind," 
said O'Sullivan, CLU 's No. 4 all-time rusher 
of re-entering the game. "I knew we had to 
win and I wanted to make sure I was in the 
game. That's where I wanted to be." 

O'Sullivan hobbled for 130 yards on 30 
carries and two touchdowns setting up a 

Pain and Gain 

Senior Tailback Cassidy O'Sullivan has done it all for 
the Kingsmen - quarterback, receiver, punt returner, 
running back - while, all along, warding off injury 

Ben Schuldheisz 34-yard field goal 
that won it 

It just went to show that if the 5-11, 
195-pound senior tailback wants to 
play in a game bad enough, a little 
injury won't stop him. He was hurt 
two years ago in this traditional game 
— it didn't stop him then, so it sure 
wouldn't stop him now. 

"There was nothing that was going 
to keep me out of this game," he 

And even since the homecoming 
game, the season has continued quite 
well for O'Sullivan. 

After sitting out the following 
week'sgame(a 19-7 winoverMenlo) 
then being tagged "the wanted man" 
by the University of Redlands' de- 
fense (a 56-24 loss) for only 47 yards, 
O'Sullivan rushed for 183 yards in 21 
carries in his last home game at CLU 
in a 55-37 loss to La Verne. 

The season, which was CLU's first 
as an official member of SCI AC, will 
come to an end after next week's 
away game against league rival 
Whittier. CLU goes into the game 
. with a 3-5 overall record, and 2-3 in 
SCIAC. The Kingsmen finished last 
season with a 5-5 record. 

The Whittier game will also mark the end 
of O'Sullivan's CLU career, which was 
mostly spent in the limelight and followed 
closely by both, the local media and sports 
fans alike. 

O'Sullivan started at quarterback, re- 
turned punts, returned kickoffs, played wide 
receiver and finally found his place for the 
past two years as one of the more effective 
rushers in CLU history at tailback. 

Siri Hetrick/Echo 

Cassidy O'Sullivan 

O'Sullivan came to CLU from Big Bear 
High in 1989 and immediately had an im- 
pact. As a freshman, he ran for a 97-year 
touchdown return against UC Santa Bar- 
bara. In his sophomore year he played dual 
roles as quarterback and running back, throw- 
ing for 369 yards and rushing for 314. He 
had the second best season by a Kingsmen 
running back by rushing for 990 yards on a 
school-record 238 attempts in his junior 

Kingsmen trounced by Leopard's attack 
in last home game of season, 55-37 

By Ray Sobrino and Rick W. Wilson 


The game featured what many would call 
a fully loaded attack.. .both running and 
passing and . Totaling 1 ,285 yards of total 
of fen se and the most combined points scored 
in a CLU football game, 92. 

With the 55-37 loss the Kingsmen fall to 
2-3 in SCIAC and 3-5 overall and are on the 
verge of having a losing season after play- 
ing .500 ball last season. 

It was a see-saw battle until the Leopards 
scored for the second time in the third 
quarter opening up its lead to 49-31 after 
only having a 35-31 lead at intermission. 

La Verne's quarterback, Willie Reyna had 
a career day, all he did was pass for 330 
yards and six touchdownsas well as rushing 
for 29 yards and two touchdowns. 

CLU quarterback also had a career day as 
he passed for 373 yards and three touch- 
downs, 1 1 of his 30 completions were di- 
rected to senior wide receiver Len Bradley, 
falling one reception shy of lying the record 
for most receptions in a game. 

Scott Wheeler finished the day with five 
catches for 84 yards and two touchdowns 
while Rob Caulfield finished with seven 
receptions for 91 yards and had six kickoff 
returns for 140 yards. 

Cassidy O'Sullivan tied Dave Nankivell's 
1 8-year old record for most yards rushing in 
a single game with 183 yards on just 21 
attempts. O'Sullivan scored two more touch- 
downs giving him 1 1 on the year. 

With 12 tackles, linebacker Chris Seslito 
recorded his 100th tackle of the year and his 
300lh of his career, putting him No.2 for 
most tackles all-time.

Breaking CLU's record for rushing at- 
tempts was seemed inevitable for 
O'Sullivan. He has always enjoyed run- 
ning 30, 35 or even 45 times a game. 

"That is the point where I really get in the 
groove of the game," O'Sullivan said. "I 
like carrying the ball as much as they will 
give it to me. I would carry it 100 times if 
they gave it to me that much." 

As far as his style of running, that was 
something established at the onset of his 
CLU career. Whether he was dropping 
back in the pocket looking for an open 
receiver or dodging tackles or running the 
ball through the middle, O'Sullivan's style 
was always original. 

"I like to juke people — make them miss 
me," he said. 'To make the other guys look 
stupid, I would say that is my forte." 

O'Sullivan first injured his left knee ex- 
actly two years prior to this year's home- 
coming game, and was confronted with the 
surgery dilemma. After contemplation and 
discussion with a few doctors, he decided 
to put it off. Since then, O'Sullivan has 
been building up his quadriceps and ham- 
string muscles, further strengthening his 

Another reason for O'Sullivan's success 
has been the offensive line of senior center 
Ben McEnroe, junior offensive lineman 
Mike Salka, sophomore offensive lineman 
Victor Magdaleno as well as the emer- 
gence of two effective rushers to lighten his 
load: Ivan Moreno and Steve Roussell. 
Roussell went to school with O'Sullivan at 
Big Bear High and was coerced into com- 
ing to CLU by O'Sullivan. 

Moreno, a 5-10, 198-pound freshman 
fullback has rushed for 280 yards in 68 
carries and four touchdowns 

"Moreno and Roussell have helped me 
out a lot this year," O'Sullivan said. 
"(Moreno) is a big kid and a great blocker, 
and Rousell is really going to step up even 
more next year." 

"When I leave here, people won't even 
know I'm gone," he said "These guys are 
going to do a great job." 

As far as the attention from the media, 
O'Sullivan might still be involved in that 
process — but this time he'll be at the other 
end of the microphone. With his communi- 
cation arts degree, O'Sullivan would like 
to get into sports broadcasting. He is look- 
ing to the off-season for a job-related in- 
ternship, covering high school games.

Kingsmen,Regals again fall in round 2 of soccer playoffs 

Kingsmen defeat Stags 1-0 , lose to Colorado College 2-0; Regals take Trinity , 3-0 , lose to UCSD, 3-2 

By Charlie Flora 


Last year the CLU men's and women's 
soccer learns each took league title honors 
into the playoffs. The Regals and Kingsmen 
then lost in the second round of the post- 

Although both teams have many new 
players and made some key changes, bom 
came up short again on the road to the final 

The Kingsmen beat SCIAC-rival 
Claremont.1-0, on Nov. 7 in the first round 
of the NCAA Division III Far West Re- 
gional, then lost to Colorado College, 2-0, 
on Nov. 8 in the second round. The Regals 
shut out Trinity Lutheran, 3-0, in the first 
round Nov. 7 before losing to UC San 
Diego 3-2 in the second round the next day. 

For the Regals, the road to the playoffs — 
from beginning to end — was almost iden- 
tical to last season. They again went unde- 
feated in SCIAC ( 1 3-0), beating most league 
teams handily. Their overall record remained 
respectable at 1 7-4 . And last year the Regals 
also took out their first playoff opponent 
with ease before falling to the Tritons, 2-0. 

"They just got lucky," said junior forward 
Rachael Wackerman of this year's loss to 
UCSD. "We played better in the first half. 
But today was their day." 

Wackerman scored both goals in the first 
half — a comerkick assisted by Carla 
Crawford at the 17:28 mark and an unas- 
sisted goal off her left foot at the 29:07 mark 
— before the Tritons lowered the boom 
with 24:25 remaining in the game to break 
the 2-2 tie. 

Freshman halfback Jill Gallegos had two

Coach Kuntz travels in "Primetime' fashion 

Sports Information Department 

It is impossible to be in two places at once, 
but the CLU men's and women's soccer 
head coach, George Kuntz did the next best 
thing, as he flew by helicopter from the 
women's soccer playoffs al UC San Diego 
in La Jolla to the men's playoffs at the 
Claremont Colleges. 

The main question was which team would 
he coach. To solve the problem for the day, 
Kuntz rode in a helicopter owned and pi- 
loted by Joe Messina of Southern Califor- 
nia Traffic Watch, who does traffic in 
Skycopter 92 for the Thousand Oaks-based 

KNJO-FM 92.7 weekday morinings. 

Kuntz coached the Regals to a 3-0 win 
over Trinity University of Texas, then 
caught his ride around 12:35 p.m. at Mile 
High Field, across the street from the soccer 
complex on the UCSD campus. 

He was taken to Cable Airport in Upland 
where he was picked up and drove to 

Here he arrived near halflime with his 
Kingsmen ahead 1-0. 

The second half of the game was score- 
less as the Kingsmen went on to win, giving 
Kuntz the thrill of witnessing a pair of 
playoff victories in one day.

these two Division III rivals. 

"I was getting knocked down every- 
where," Gallegos said. "It wasn't that they 
were bigger than us. it was the way they 

Freshman forward Keir Cochran scored 
the winning goal for the Kingsmen in the 
Claremont game at the 38:24 mark in the 
firsthalf. The Kingsmen wereoutshot in the 
Colorado game, 1 7-4, but CLU goalie Josh 
Green made 13 saves. 

The Kingsmen did come home partially 
satisfied, however, as beating the Stags at 
Claremont was sweet revenge. 

Claremont, just one week earlier, gave 
the Kingsmen a scare by shutting out CLU 
1-0, in the SCIAC championship game. 
CLU figured it had to win that game to gain 
an invitation to the playoffs. But even after 
the loss, the Kingsmen and the Stags were 
both invited to the playoffs at Claremont 

Cochran took a pass from junior mid- 
fielder Dave Eshleman and, in a one-on- 
one situation with the goalie, won the battle 
with the Kingsmen 's only score. The cel- 
ebration that followed was the best part of 
the weekend for CLU. 

"We had a great time after the goal," said 
Cochran, in his first college playoff apj. ear- 
ance. "Especially with their crowd and with 
our crowd there. It was awesome." 

The loss against the No. 1 -seeded Colo- 
rado Tigers was partially due to the fact that 
the Kingsmen were not fully recovered 
from the emotional win over the Stags, 
Cochran said. "They played really good in 
the air," Cochran said. "It was a good game 
overall. The refs weren't calling as many 
fouls. There was a lot of hard tackling. But 
our team is physical and we like that style. 

"I think we would win them if we played 
them again. If we played them 10 times, we 
could probably win nine." 

Coach George Kuntz opted to stay for the 
Regals' game Oct. 8, after attending both 
the previous day.

Student arrested for drug connections 

Junior allegedly sold 156 lbs. of marijuana; $10,000 found 

By Amy Dale and Kristin Butler 


CLU junior Moshe Levy, 24, was arrested 
at his home Nov. 9 by Ventura County 
sheriffs detectives on suspicion of possess- 
ing and selling marijuana. 

Ventura County Sheriff Gary Pentis said 
detectives and FBI agents had been watch- 
ing Levy's house in Thousand Oaks for 
some lime, and after allegedly seeing sev- 
eral drug transactions, obtained a search 
warrant to search Levy's home. 

"We have really good information from 
three or four sources that say he's been 
dealing for about six years," Pentis said. 

The search produced SI 0,000 in cash as 
well as five pounds of marijuana, according 
to the Los Angeles Times on Nov. 1 1 . Levy's 
two roommates, 22-year-old Bryan Pearson 
and 27-year-old Preston Walsh, were ar- 

rested with Levy. 

The three men were taken to East Valley 
Jail where they were booked on illegal 
possession and sale of drugs. Levy was 
released after making bail Nov. 10, while 
Pearson and Walsh were moved to Ventura 
County Jail, where they were being held on 
S5.000 bail each. 

According to Pentis, Levy was "lucky to 
get out; we were in the process of raising 
his bail to $50,000 but he got out before we 
got approval from the judge." 

CLU Dean of Student Affairs Ronald 
Kragthorpe said that at this time no action 
will be taken against Levy as far as the 
university is concerned. Kragthorpe in- 
tends to wait for the charges pending against 
Levy and will evaluate the situation at thai 


"Historically, Cal Lutheran has not in- 
volved itself in legal matters with stu- 

dents," Kragthorpe said. 

Levy's arrest came after Ventura resi- 
dents Jeffrey Steward and Craig Minney 
were arrested in Utah with 156 pounds of 
marijuana allegedly sold to them by Levy. 
According to Pentis, Levy at first "tried to 
play the game where he'd say he only sold 
a little to his friends and that's it, but we 
know that's not true." 

Pentis added that this was the sixth time 
Steward and Minney bought large quanti- 
ties of marijuana from Levy, and dial both 
men are "willing to testify to that." 

When asked what would happen to Levy 
concerning the arrest, Pentis commented 
that "he has the opportunity to cooperate 
with us, and the charges against him could 
drop to a lesser degree or to none if he'll tell 
us what he knows. The case now is being 
moved to the District Attorney's office, 
and we'll go from there." 

Mills discusses ecology, 
feminism, restoration 

By Laryssa Kreiselmeyer 


Author, editor, lecturer and ecology activ- 
ist Stephanie Mills called for people to co- 
operate in smaller, regional efforts to pre- 
vent the environmental destruction of the 

Mills was this year's Harold Stoner Clark 
lecturer on Nov. 9. 

Mills has been involved in bioregionalism, 
a topic of one of the lectures, for quite some 
time. She says her own pessimism was one 
of the reasons she was drawn to 

Bioregionalism is bio-centric instead of 
anthropocentric. All living beings have equal 
rights to life instead of man's ultimate right 
to rule. The movement is non-reformist and 
non- violent. To be a bioregionalist, a loyalty 
a bioregion similar to the loyalty to family is 

A bioregion may be determined by water- 
sheds, vegetation, and in California, by the 
territories of Native American tribes. Each 
bioregion is distinctive and individual. 

At her graduation ceremony from Mills, 
she gave a speech entitled, "The Future is a 

Cruel Hoax." In a world in which 140 
species of animals and plants disappear 
into extinction each day, Mills says she 
pities the young who must live on mis 
ravaged planet and has vowed not to have 
any children of her own. 

It is this pessimism that keeps Mills from 
falling back on the "soft and impotent" 
easy solutions of technology to cure the 
environmental crisis. She says that we must 
rebuild the ecostructure instead of 
"debuilding" it. In order to accomplish this. 
Mills suggests working together in small 
groups for a slower, simpler way of life. 

Mills spoke of a particular restoration 
project in California in which school chil- 
dren are involved in the planting of sap- 
lings to stabilize eroded topsoil and the use 
of hatchboxes to boost the population of 

Mills calls these efforts part of 
reinhabitory thinking. This means that the 
participants are making a conscious effort 
to alter the environment In order for this to 
occur, she says, people must be liberated 
from their own little egos to work .together 

Restoration of the prairie is also a large

project in the U.S. for ecologists. Aldo 
Leopold, a forester and ecologist, is one of 
Mills' models. Mills has spoken to 
Leopold's eldest daughter and has visited 
the Leopold residence, now a historic state 
park. She has viewed the incredible change 
of ecology on that land due to the interven- 
tion of the Leopold family after the original 
owner burned itto the ground. The Leopolds 
planted pine saplings where groves of ma- 
ture trees now stand. Animals have re- 
claimed homes lost decades ago to flames.

dant and healthy at the Leopold residence.

Radio tower 
building costs 
nearing limit 

By Charlie Flora 


With construction costs, license renewal 
and new site approval expenses looming, 
a good chunk of the money allocated for 
CLU's radio tower project has already 
been spent on pre-construction costs, it 
was announced at the Nov. 9 faculty meet- 

The approximate $270,000 spent for le- 
gal fees, environmental impact reports and 
FCC license fees among others, has all but 
consumed the original budget of $290,000, 
which was passed by the Board of Regents 
and intended for the completion of the 
entire project — including the actual con- 
struction of the tower. 

At this point the regents, CLU's govern- 
ing body, will not allow the university to 
spend any more than the remaining $20,000 
that was passed at their October budget 
meeting, according to CLU President 

Luther Luedtke. 
If the project requires more money , it will 

again have to be approved by the regents, 
Luedtke said. 

However, if the money for the actual 
construction will be approved, Luedtke 
said, is not known. The president added 
that the $290,000 budget for the tower has 
been altered but did not say what the new 
budget was. 

For now, the estimated $20,000 remain- 
ing will be spent on getting approval for 
construction of the new site on the Conejo 
Grade. Whether or not CLU will have to 
spend more money on environmental re- 
ports depends on if the mitigated negative 
declaration — a proposition to the city 
Planning Commission to forego further 
EIRs — is passed at the Dec. 14 planners' 

"The zone changes for CLU's new site 
will require City Council approval as well 
as the approval of another Special Use 
Permit," said Ed Rinke, a City Council 
planner who is preparing the tower' s SUP. 

Also, the FCC license, which allows the 
tower to be built, has yet to be renewed as 
of Nov. 13. 

The site CLU is pursuing is next to other 
towers owned by Southern California

Economics, unrealistic demands cause student stress 

By College Press Service 
and Kristin Butler 


Whether it's slaving over books or at a 
part-time job, college students risk burnout 
with the late hours and hectic schedules in 
the race to get a diploma. 

Workaholism wears many faces in the 
college population: It shows up in an 
overachieving, perfectionist "super-stu- 
dent," a cash-strapped scholar juggling a 
job and schoolwork, or a college athlete 
who squeezes study between hours of prac- 
tice, say psychologists who counsel 
stressed-out students. 

"There is a sense, nationwide, that men- 
tal health staffs are seeing more distressed 
college students," said Phillip Meilman, 
director of counseling at the College of 
William and Mary in Virginia and author 
of "Beating the College Blues." 

"There is no hard data, however, but 
there is a subjective impression that there is 
a higher level of dysfunction, that there are 
more serious problems," Meilman said, 
noting that substance abuse is often an 
attempt to regulate stress. 

The average college experience today is 
no longer the easy, unrushed transition into 
adulthood that it used to be. 

'The stakes have been raised to the point 
that everyone else has to do more to arrive at 
the same place, and that becomes stressful 
and unhealthy," Meilman said. 

Mental health experts agree that economic 
problems are taking a toll on students, and 
many are seeking helpat university counsel- 
ing centers to cope with the complexities of 
their lives. 

"The increasing cost of college, the prob- 
lematic economy, coupled with students 
placing unrealistic demands on themselves, 
are having an impact on students and on how 
much they can engage in the learning pro- 
cess," said Alan Berkowitz, director of the 
counseling center at Hobart and William 
Smith Colleges in New York. 

Students are working more hours at part- 
time and full-time jobs and are getting paid 
less for their efforts. Educators complain 
that bleary-eyed students, struggling to pay 
rent and tuition, often put academics on the 
back burner. 

However, colleges and universities are 
becoming more enlightened about stress. 

New York University has more than 50 
programs in residence halls to assist stu- 
dents in coping with stress. One group, 
known as "Peers Ears," offers walk-in of- 
fices staffed with trained students who offer 
support to harassed students. 

Senate expresses concern 
over student involvement 

By Amy Anderson 


The ASCLU Senate expressed concern 
for the lack of student panicipation and 
interest in Senate-sponsored activities dur- 
ing the Nov. 11 meeting. Many Senate 
members are feeling discouraged by the 
poor attendance level of students. 

In an effort to improve events and the 
Senate's image, a survey is going to be 
distributed in order to determine what types 
of activities the students at CLU are inter- 
ested in. 
Monte Carlo night took place on Nov. 14 

in the gymnasium. Black jack, poker, 
mocktails and a DJ were some of the main 
attractions. As students entered they were 
given S50 worth of chips to play with. There 
was a contest to see which class could win 
the most money, that class then donated that 
money to charity. 
Parents weekend is being planned for Feb- 
ruary . Letters to parents are in the process of 
being mailed. 

Pep Athletics Commissioner Michelle 
Milius announced that the nominations for a 
school mascot are a knight and a Lu Dog. 
Elections will be held to determine the win- 
ning mascot. 

"I think it's important to refocus and to 
bite off small bits at a lime instead of trying 
to tackle everything at once. It's easier to 
work in small chunks," commented CLU 
Pastor Mark Knutson. 

"I think one of the things students forget 
about when they're under stress is the im- 
portance of physical exercise. The fatigue 
created by stress is not genuine, and stu- 
dents can work through some stress by 
expending some energy," added Knutson. 

Student stress seems to gel worse as years 
go by, according to an article in The New 
York Times that recendy reported that the 
mental health center at the University of 
Washington in Seattle sees more graduate 
and professional students than undergradu- 
ates, and more seniors than juniors. 

Even at institutions where money worries 
take a backseat to academic concerns, the 
issue of workaholism has taken on new 
dimensions in the past five years. 

Mental health workers say that habitual, 
addictive work patterns among college stu- 
dents have childhood roots, and even chil- 

Luedtke speaks at 
CAPIO meeting 

By Amy Anderson 


President Luedtke spoke to the Califor- 
nia Association of Public Information Of- 
ficials Nov. 10 following a luncheon hosted 
in the Nelson room. 

Luedtke *s speech entitled "Gaining Cred- 
ibility Within and Without: A View From 
the Top" included information about the 
time that he spent as director of the Journal- 
ism Department at the University of South- 
ern California. 

Luedtke also described the move from 
USC to Cal Lutheran:"The move fit so 

beautifully into my life CLU and USC 

are very different kinds of institutions and 
have equal reasons to be proud." 

Luedtke mentioned that CLU does have 
the advantage of being small and recendy 

"California Lutheran is a wonderful story 

dren as young as 4, 5 and 6 are feeling 
pressured to compete with their peers in 
today's world. 
'There is a lot of rewarding of that kind of 
behavior in our society," said Dr. Mort 
Ormond, author of "The 14-Day Stress 
Cure," who says that students of all ages are 
suffering an "epidemic of stress." 

"Sometimes stress will come out in the 
sense that students will come in complain- 
ing of a cold every week or of muscle aches 
and what not," said Beverly Kemmerling, 
CLU's Director of Health Services. "Stress 
reduces a person's immune system which 
can lead to sickness more often," she added. 

Mental health experts say they can often 
chart the stress level at their institutions by 
the academic schedule and the time of year. 

"It fluctuates, of course, during the se- 
mester as to how many students come to me 
with stress, but it's usually mid-semester 
and final exam time. Stress can also be 
related to issues at home or relationships, 
but it's certainly related to academics," said 

Luedtke at the CAPIO meeting.

Luedtke also expressed the importance of

high level of respect. He believes it is im- 
portant to be connected with an institution 
that has a social purpose.

Mills says there are definite ways to go 
about restoring an ecostmcture. In the be- 
ginning, the source of disturbance, such as 
mining or fanning, must be eliminated. 
Then the original, natural wildlife must be 
replanted and reinstated. This may only 
take place if people are willing to learn 
about what could happen with a completely 
destroyed habitat It is a difficult task to put 
an ecosystem back together. Perhaps, Mills 
hopes, if people realize how difficult it is to 
put it back together, they will think twice 
before destroying it 

During a special mid-afternoon "Brown 
Bag" lecture, Mills discussed with a small 
group the principles of eco- fern in ism. She 
explains that eco-feminism is like the 
bottle in the story Alice in Wonderland. 
Every person who drinks of it tastes a 
different flavor. Eco-feminism is the way 
feminism relates to ecology and the preser- 
vation of the environment. 

The origin of eco-feminism is in Women's 
Pentagon Action. Alliances formed during 
the 1976 movement have lasted and 
evolved. Mills says any feminist concerned 
with ecology would be an eco- feminist. 
She mentioned writer Mary Daly's theory 
that the treatment of women and their bod- 
ies is analogous to the exploitation of the 
earth. The essential nature of woman is of 
the earth. It is this nature that makes women 

qualified to save earth. 
Eco- feminists are attempting to move away 
from sky god religions such as Judeo Chris- 
tianity in order to eradicate the celestial 
masculinity that are an integral part of them, 
she said. 

Mi 1 1 s spent a part of her summer in a small 
town in northern India. Within a harsh envi- 
ronment, the people are forced to make the 
most of their scant resources. Rich in cer- 
emony and tradition, the culture is rooted in 
an "ethic of cooperation. "Recently thegov- 
emment of India laid a road through the 
small, virtually untouched town and it be- 
came "infected with a virus," according to 
Mills. A murder rate suddenly appeared 
along with the tourist trade. People became 
interested in money, and waste, virtually 
unheard of before the advent of this road, 
came into being. Mills offered this example 
as a relation to the waste in the industrial- 
ized West that causes much ecological havoc. 

To Mills, bioregionalism is a movement 
about learning how to belong again to a 
nurturing planet. "Trying to explain 
bioregionalism is like trying to explain liv- 
ing. It's pretty sprawling," she says. It dif- 
fers from mainstream environmentalist! in 
the way that it addresses the importance of 
culture in environmental solutions. No ge- 
neric government policy will relate to all 
people everywhere. Where one lives is im- 
portant as well as how. It is the where that 
determines the how. 

Aldo Leopold described his awareness of 
the abuse of the environment as "living 
alone in a world of wounds."

Rancho Conejo Boulevard in Newbury Park. 
The Dec. 14 meeting, which will discuss the 
new site, is open to the public in the City 
Council chambers, 2150 Hillcrest Drive. 

Luedtke said that the tower could have 
easily been built within its original budget 
had it not been for the city's opposition, 
which forced the site change and the accom- 
panying legal fees. 

But because of the many legal battles that 
CLU has had with the city of Thousand Oaks 
and the City Council with its intended 
Mountclef Ridge site, the budget has sky- 
rocketed over the past three years. 

And despite rumors on campus that fund- 
ing for the tower has ceased and the increas- 
ing amount of money spent on the lower, 
CLU's administration remains positive. 

"We are committed to this," said Dennis 
Gillette, CLU's vice president for adminis- 
tration. "The Board of Regents analyzed all 
aspects of the project and we are going to try 
to complete this without overspending our 

The university still intends to erect the 
tower as long as things go smoothly with the 
city of Thousand Oaks, according to Gillette. 
Luedtke said the date for completion of the 
tower is now set at June 13, 1993. But that 
doesn't necessarily mean the tower will be up 
and running at that time, he added. 

The $270,000, which came from a Califor- 
nia Educational Facilities Act bond, was used 
to pay, for the most part, all the legal fees in 
trying to get the controversial project ap- 
proved. The city has mounted opposition to 
the tower from the early stages of this pro- 
posal three years ago. 

Thousand Oaks City Council member Elois 
Zeanah and groups such as the Friends of 
Mountclef Ridge are vehemently opposed to 
the tower's construction and have forced 
CLU into more council and planning meet- 
ings than what were originally intended. 

The special bond enables private universi- 
ties to borrow money for capital projects such 
as this, according to Gillette. Luedtke added 
that the interest rate on this bond is "modest" 
and will be paid back gradually. 

"This government loan is part of a larger 
loan taken out by the university for its long- 
range plan," Luedtke said. "It will be paid 
back out of combined money from motion 
and gift sources."

Asian week: 4 days of activities 

By Amy Walz 


The Asian American Association pre- 
sented its annual Asian Cultural Festival 
'92 Nov. 9-12 under the coordination of 
15 CLU students. 

The purpose of the week is "to promote 
awareness and appreciation of the Asian 
American culture," according to Megan 
Shih, the group's adviser. 

Although just over six percent, or 1 15 
students of CLU's total enrollment (not 
including international students) are Asian 
American, there was a good turnout for 
the events. 

Last year, the week coincided with the 
Chinese New Year in February, but due to 
the many events in the spring, it was 
changed to the fall of this year. 

Past events have included a culture fair 
at which more than 100 students and fac- 
ulty attended, and a variety show. 

"Ju Dou," a Chinese film that was named 
the best foreign film in 1991, was shown 
in the Preus-Brandt Forum Nov. 9. 

A night of Chinese classical music was 
held on Tuesday and the many performers 
included: Zou-Yao Liu, a master of Koto 

or suing and Chinese flute (dee); Pei- 
Yuan Lu, an artist in Chinese lyre (pi-pa); 
Ming-Tsu, an artist in bamboo pipe or 
shao; and Suzan Nishihara, a performer of 

The 60-minute performance included 
songs such as "Three Ways to Tease the 
Plum Flower," and "Spring Moon On The 
River," which provided an interesting 
change from classical American music. 

Freshman Xochitl Castillo, commented, 
"I liked it, and I thought the music was 

On Wednesday, three one-woman shows 
were presented by Asian American art- 

Louise Mita, who appeared in "The 
Mambo Kings" and "Karate Kid II," per- 
formed "Growing Up from Harlem to 
Hawaii." Jude Narita performed "One 
Strong Heart," and "Karate Bamboo," 
which is about a teen-age troublemaker 
from a family of high achievers. Man 
Sunaida, performed "Hybrid Vigor,"

College hopefuls get a feel for campus 

By Michelle Lea 


Campus tours, lunch in Kingsmen Park, 
admission and athletic presentations and 
an academic fair were just some of the 
activities involved in Showcase '92 on 
Nov. 8 and 9. 

Students, family and guests were in- 
vited to take a first hand look at CLU 
during this annual fall visitation program. 
The program is designed to allow partici- 
pants the opportunity to experience the 
CLU campus, people and programs that 
make up and enhance the university com- 

Showcase '92 began on Sunday with 
two groups participating in various activi- 

Events for both groups were the same 
throughout the day but were held at differ- 
ent times. Differing options for the two 

groups included attending chapel or an Edu- 
cational Equity forum. 

A continental breakfast, admissions and 
financial aid appointments along with class 
visitations completed Monday morning's 
activities. Among the classes visited were 
art with Dr. Jerald Slattum, business with 
Dr. James Esmay, history with Dr. Jonathan 
Boe, and English with Dr. Susan Corey. 

Responding to questions regarding Show- 
case '92, Assistant Director of Admissions 
Kelly Davis felt that everything went very 

'There were very good impressions made 
to the parents coming out of admission ap- 
pointments," said Davis. 

Davis was also very pleased with the Presi- 
dential Hosts as they played an important 
role in the event by leading campus tours, 
mingling and answering questions at the 
academic fair and lunch, and participating in 
a student-faculty panel. 

Presidential Hosts is an activities group 
directly responsible to the Admissions 
Office, which assists at university-spon- 
sored events and receptions. 

Senior Janeen Hagerty, a first-year 
Presidential Host, said, "It was fun giving 
a tour to such a big group. I got asked a lot 
of fun questions about CLU." 

Hagerty felt that the parents were very 
impressed with the effort that went into 
the event. 

Participants also had the opportunity to 
stay overnight in the residence halls with 
CLU students. Sara Richardson, 1 7, of La 
Canada said, "I really enjoyed going out 
Sunday night with the girls I was staying 
with and asking questions. I had a lot of 

Showcase '92 hosted about 125 stu- 
dents and their families traveling from 
Arizona, Washington, and Nevada as well 
as from all parts of California. 

Business office donates money to Habitat 

By Elaine Borgonia 


Oct. 30 wasn't just an ordinary Hallow- 
een celebration for the Business Office. 
Its staff held a three-booth fair in the 
office mat displayed baked goods, Christ- 
mas decorations, and knickknacks. 
By the end of the day, the Business 

Office had collected $404.95. After a group 
corroboration, it was decided that proceeds 
of the sale would go to Habitat For Human- 

"We wanted to give it to Habitat because 
of the recession. In this way, the money will 
help others," Linda Ketelhul said in support 
of the decision. 

Just last Wednesday, Nov. 10, the Busi- 

ness staff presented a deposit receipt to 
the Habitat for Humanity club. 

President Kjersti Berg, a junior, and 
Treasurer Debbie Wolfe, a senior, were 
present to accept the donation on behalf of 
the rest of the officers and of the club. 

Cal Lutheran's chapter of Habitat for 
Humanity was started almost three years

Volunteer Center asking 
students for help Nov. 1 8 


November 16, 1992 

t CMC) 

By Wendy Dessardo 


The University Volunteer Center is kick- 
ing off this holiday season with a reception 
on Nov. 18 from 1 1 a.m. to 3 p.m., asking 
students to give a gift through volunteer 
services and charitable organizations. 

Melanie Hudes, acting director of Cam- 
pus Activities, said the problem in the past 
has been that "many students want to help 
but their schedules are so demanding that it 
doesn't go any further than the thought" 

Hudes added that the Volunteer Center is 
not looking for long time commitments; 
volunteering an hour of time makes a world 
of difference, Hudes added. 

As a community outreach program, the 
volunteer center is an organization which 
involves itself with numerous projects in- 
cluding feeding the homeless, renovating 
homes for the unfortunate, donating goods 
and providing services for other off-cam- 
pus organizations such as Zoe Christian 
Center, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 
Habitat for Humanity and Action vs. 

Because of the volunteer center's efforts, 
many individuals, families and organiza- 

tions will have a happy holiday season, 
Hudes said, adding that there are still many 
people who need help. 

The center is urging all students to come 
to the reception and sign up to volunteer 
between Nov. 18 and the beginning of 

The center is asking for volunteers to 
simply give the greatest gift this holiday 
season: compassion. 

The center has experienced many forms 
of voluntary actions since its opening last 

Students volunteer through donations of 
goods, through their time and passing on of 
the message of the center. 

The idea for the center came about when 
two students, Melissa O'Hara resident di- 
rector of Mountclef Hall and sophomore 
Allison Pilmer, recognized aneed for com- 
munity outreach. 

The center provides information and as- 
sistance to students and staff about volun- 
teer opportunities. 

It also provides students with hands-on 
experience while helping the community 
at the same time. 

For more information on the volunteer 
center, contact O'Hara at Ext. 3 197. 

LASO appreciation Nov. 20 

By Mirella Escamilla 


As the holidays approach, many are pre- 
paring for the upcoming festivities. Like- 
wise, the Latin American Student Organi- 
zation has started to plan. 

On Nov. 20, LASO members hold their 
annual Thanksgiving Appreciation Dinner 
for all facility and campus dining employ- 

The appreciation dinner started in 1983 
by LASO and has been held consistantly 
ever since. 

"It's an annual event that has been very 
successful in the past and we know that this 
upcoming dinner will be no different," com- 
mented sophomore Blanca Vera, the chair 
person of the event. Students such as Vera, 

and her co-chairpersons Michelle Reyes, 
junior, and Jose Soliz, freshman, have been 
busy preparing for this event for the last 
few months. The group has received some 
donations to cover the cost of the dinner. 
The rest will be covered by LASO. 

"It's a lot of work involved, but it all pays 
off the day of the dinner," said Reyes. 

Like last year, the dinner will be held on 
the top floor of the cafeteria from 6: 30 to 1 1 

This year facilities and campus dining 
employees along with their families will be 
enjoying turkey, mashed potatoes with 
gravy and numerous desserts and drinks. 
For entertainment, LASO's folkloric 
dance group will be performing, a DJ will 
be present, and for those who love to dance, 
a dance contest will be held.

Abortion shouldn't have been an election issue 

Opinion Writer 

I saw a bumper sucker yesterday that read 
"Keep your laws off my body." I laughed in 
agreement with the slogan at first, but then 
began to talk to my roommate and ponder 
its significance, especially in the last elec- 

The question of abortion will never be 
answered in this country. We know when 
an embryo becomes a fetus and when you 
can hear the heartbeat, but the voluntary 
termination of the pregnancy is and will 
always be a moral and religious question. 

This is where I believe our Constitution 
should come in, under the section of "sepa- 

ration of church and state." I do not believe 
that government — ruled by a majority of 
males or not — should have a say in abor- 
tion. Denying women the right to an abor- 
tion would simply be an infringement on 
our freedom. 

Many pro-choice activists argue about 
government funding for abortion. Even 
though I don't think it's the best idea, I put 
myself in the position of a pregnant woman 
who, for one or many reasons, does not wan t 
the child. Sure, adoption is a great idea and 
works out great in most instances for the 
adoptive families, but I know that I could 
never give a baby away. 

In our country, three children die from 
neglect and abuse every day. I cannot help 
but think that these children were unwanted 
at one time, and how all their pain and 
suffering is unneeded. Last year more than 
300,000 babies were bom addicted to crack 

or cocaine related substances: These are all 
children who will never have a real chance 
to survive and to be self-sufficient in our 
society. If the abortion option is not avail- 
able to these parents who are obviously 
incapable of taking care of their own chil- 
dren, our society would have a greater bur- 
den than we already carry. Abortion funded 
by the state has probably saved many lives 
and given souls that had no chance, another 
time and place. 

It's almost ridiculous how much "choice" 
played a part in the election; I believe the 
results show that the people (especially 
women voters), when making voting deci- 
sions, would much rather swing to the left 
than to the right. 

Of course the outcome reflects the discon- 
tent of the masses about how things are 
going, and I find it disheartening that so 
many had to use the choice of abortion as the 

largest part of their platform just to win 
votes. People running for representative 
seats were even using the issue, as if they 
would have any say in the overturning of 
Roe v. Wade. (Supreme Court nominees 
are voted on by the Senate, not the House 
of Representatives). 

When Clarence Thomas was being ques- 
tioned before his induction to the Court, 
cross-examiners could not ask him what 
his position was on abortion. I think it 
should be a rule for all politicians, and I 
would go as far as to propose a bill that 
would discontinue all government inter- 
ference with this personal religious issue. 

We have wasted enough time and money 
on it already; and I believe that in years to 
come it will be evident that, in November 
1992, we the people wasted just as many 
important leaders on a question that is 

A matter of 

I'm writing in response to the contro- 
versy that has risen in the past few weeks 
regarding the use of the name "Jesus." I 
feel that both Mr. Young's article (Notes 
from a man living in a CLU hole — New 
West, Ocl 5), and Mr. Holub's adament 
support (Opinion Editor a step away 
from conformity, OcL 12) of this behav- 
ior, is disgraceful and can be seen as 
evidence for this university's departure 
from what Mr. Holub refers to as "Chris- 


tian conformity." 

If Mr. Holub feels that society's depar- 
ture from God and His principles is the only 
way that we can reach "the true and ulti- 
mate freedom that is part of us all ," then the 
end of the world is closer than we think. 

If you Mr. Young, or you Mr. Holub 
don't believe that is your choice. But, to 
hurl this blasphemy in the face of readers 
both Christian and non-Christian, in a pub- 
lication that is supposed to represent this 

Christian institution, is offensive to say the 

And when Mr. Holub accused the leader- 
ship of this university of catering to "God- 
fearing Christians," I say that they should, 
because "God-fearing Christian" such as 
myself come to this University in hope of 
getting their education in Christian surround- 

If we can't even have this, then they might 
as well take the cross down from Mountclef 

Ridge, and take down the Christian flag 
because this institution would be no more 
Christian than all the secular institutions 
I chose not to go to. 

As for Mr. Holub, maybe he should go 
to one of those secular institutions where 
he doesn't ever have to hear about God 
again. And as for his question "whose 
Lord?" to that I answer Jesus is MY Lord, 
and Lord of ALL. 

Finally, in regard to this type of "free- 
dom of expression," Jesus has this to say, 
"But I say unto you, That every idle word 
that men shall speak, they shall give an 
account thereof in the Day of Judgment" 
(Matt. 12:36).

I am writing in response to the contro- 
versy that has surounded a particular 
article written by Mr. Lance T. Young 
on October S. It is both amazing and 
appalling to me that such a furor would 
result from one opinion article. 

The responses which have resulted 
from Lance's use of the word "Jesus" in 
this particular article have missed its 
entire point. This word was used only as 
an exclamation to express disgust about 
the current state of student housing; it 
did not serve as the central theme of the 
article, and was simply used in the con- 
text of conversational writing. 

Because of this, in reality, this matter 
should have garnered no more notice 
than it would have in ordinary conversa- 
tion between students. Blasphemy was 
obviously not his goal, and a writer 
cannot be responsible for the offended 
sensibilities of a few readers, or even 
many readers if that is the case. 

However, it seems to me that this matter 
has become one of principle, in large part 
because of the reactionary response of both 
students and administration. If the article 
had been ignored, the issue of Lance's 
"blasphemy" would not have resulted in 
this uproar, and the issue would have died. 
Instead, however, because of the amount of 
attention paid to this trivial matter, the 
freedom of expression of one student, and 
consequently of all students, faculty and 
staff, is being threatened. 

I can understand that the use of words 
such as "Jesus" and other profane or ob- 
scene words could be offensive to some 
people; and I believe firmly that if one is 
offended, one should feel free to voice such 
opinions, which has been done. However, 
I believe just as strongly that people, such 
as Lance, have an equal right to their opin- 
ions, and, if need be, to offend people in 
order to make their point. A writer cannot 
determine the response of each particular 

reader to a given piece, and is in no way 
responsible for such response. 

In the 17th century John Milton wrote in 
defense of the freedom of expression, "... 
all opinions, yea errors, known, read, and 
collated, are of main service and assistance 
toward the speedy attainment of what is 
truest . . . God left arbitrary the dieting and 
repasting of our minds; as wherein every 
mature man might have to exercise his own 
leading capacity" (Areopagitica, 727). 

If a person writing over 300 years ago 
could see that all opinions, both "good" and 
"bad", should be expressed, and their judg- 
ments left to the discretion of each reader, it 
seems to me that a 20th century institution 
dedicated to intellectual questioning should 
take no stand other than to guarantee com- 
plete freedom of expression to everyone in 
its community. 

If these rights, both to express disagree- 
ment with offensive material and to write 
this offensive material, cease to exist, the 

foundations of this university will be 
called into question. According to the 
university shield, CLU is dedicated to 
Christ, Truth, and Freedom. 

"Since therefore, the knowledge and 
survey of vice is in this world so neces- 
sary to the constitution of human virtue, 
and the scanning of error to the confir- 
mation of truth, how can we more safely 
and with less danger scout into the re- 
gions of sin and falsity than by reading 
all manner of tractates and hearing all 
manner of reason?" (Areopagitica). 

Lance's opinion is his own; the admin- 
istration and faculty, to say nothing of 
the students, should guard his right to 
expression as they would guard their 
own. There is nothing more vital to the 
search for truth and wisdom man the free 
expression of controversial opinions; if, 
as in this case, this freedom demands the 
use of offensive language, so be it.

Stand by your rules 

Visitation hours, that is, the hours when a member of the opposite sex is allowed in 
your room if you live in either Pederson or Mt. Clef, are from 10 a.m. to 1 1 p.m. 
Sunday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. The 
purpose of these restrictions is well-meaning. New freshmen coming to college can 
be overwhelmed by the newly imposed freedom and eventually end up disrupting 
their education. Nervous parents are consoled by the fact that Nancy has to be out of 
Doug's room by 11p.m. In short, itgives parents a secure feeling that this is a "decent 
school" unlike those nasty state schools that they have heard horror stories about. It 
also serves to promote the kind of ethics that a Christian school is known for. 

However, being a Christian school, CLU should be aware that "the road to hell is 
paved with good intentions." These regulations designed to acclimate the new 
student to college life are silly and unproductive if not enforced. It seems the school 
should make a choice. Stand by its set of ethics and enforce the hours or officially drop 
them (everybody knows they are not strictly observed) and trust what are now 1 8- and 
19-year-old students with the responsibility that should be given to them.

About Pepper withdrawal 

Jay Ashkinos 
Opinion Writer 

I am checking out. Actually, I am check- 
ing in. Anywhere. I am going through with- 
drawal. The worst kind too. Dr Pepper 
withdrawal. You heard me. This is no joke. 
I have gone a whole week without my 
trademark beverage and it is killing me. 

Why am I taking this life-altering step? 
None of your business. Just shut up and let 
me screw up my own life, thank you very 
much. Just kidding. That's a joke son, a 
joke! I really want to tell you the story. 
Heck, you might learn something (but prob- 
ably not). 

For starters, there is nothing more de- 
pressing than being a loser. It really stinks 
to fail. Unfortunately , by now many of you 
know that I have created a science out of it. 
Sunday I had a hockey game. We Iosl It 
would have been OK if it was a regular 
every day-type loss. You know, tried hard 
but the day was theirs. It just wasn't meant 
to be. This did not happen on the night in 
question. You see, first of all, we were the 
underdog. I mean like Rocky Balboa, not 
that cartoon superhero we all watched on 
Sunday mornings with George of the Jungle 
and Tom Slick and Popeye and The Little 
Rascals. You know, it was hosted by Tom 
Hauen (my mom was on a game show with 
him before. She won a TV. It's broken now). 
Sorry, I went off. Now, back to my story: 
Not only were we the underdog, we were 
also playing against Dave Carlson's team, a 
CLU graduate, and I would love to have 
beaten his team. Anyway, we made an 
excellent comeback and tied the game by 
the end of regulation. We went into 
shootouts. Dave went first. He missed. I 
lowered my head and laughed. Then our 
guy went, and missed. In fact, all of our 
guys missed. One of their guys made it and 
they won and we lost ... again. Our record is 
the same as the Raiders' record. 

What does this have to do with me giving 
up the Great Beverage? Just hold on, OK? 

Don't be so impatient, will ya? I don't tell 
you how to you your job (like I'd know 
anyway) so don't tell me how to do mine. 
I'm going somewhere with this, so just calm 
down and read on, brother. Gosh, people 
like you ruin it for everyone else. 

When I left the dressing room, my friend 
handed me a Dr Pepper. I gulped it down in 
less than three seconds (hot water can burn 
your skin in that time, according to yellow 
cartoon canaries). She was supporting my 
addiction, but one wasn't enough. I saw 
Dave in the parking lot. "Ha, ha. You missed 
your shot!" I said teasingly. "Ha, ha. We 
won," Carlson answered. I felt really cool 
then. On the way home, we stopped at the 

store. I grabbed a 1 2-pack of DP's and went 
on my merry way. When I got home, I began 
to drink. One after another. Until there was 
none. I tell you, the colors I saw that night 
were amazing. 

I woke up the next day and my stomach 
was in a knot (one of those Boy Scout super- 
duper knots, too, not your common slip- 
knot). An OD on DP. I had actually put 
enough caffeine in my system to give me a 

What did I do? I opened the fridge to grab 
my ritual morning Dr Pepper, of course. But

vigorously and probably drooling. I NEED 
CARAMEL COLOR! What was I going to 
do? I ran into the kitchen to see if there was 
another stash (everyone hid their Dr Pep-

mine said it tastes like battery acid. I always 
wondered how he knew. 

And then I caught myself. I realized how 
stupid I was acting. So I decided to quit. 
Totally. Not just Dr Pepper, but caffeine 
altogether. It has been a week now, and I 
haven 't tasted a drop (honest). I am so proud 
of myself, I think they should declare the

Now's the time that rock 'n' roll gets 'Real' 

By Micah Reitan 


Speak of the devil! Last week in my Bon 
Jovi review I wrote abouiCecie Robinson, 
the girl I loved in junior high. Friday 
afternoon in Venice Beach, I saw her! It's 
strange, yet wonderful, how God brings 
friends back around, isn't it? She's a cheer- 
leader for the University ofArizona now, 
and was in town for the U of A-USC 
football game. 

Another strange thing. This week's re- 
view is on a band that opened up on Jovi's 
latest tour. Life is so precious. 

So, let us begin the review. 

In all reality it's been a long lime since 
I've had the chance to just kick back, 
listen, and disect a CD word by word, note 
by note and chord by chord. But mis week 
I finally got a chance to do that. 

With guitar in hand, I analyzed Mr. 
Reality, a new accoustical rock trio. 

After operating on this disc, I found this 
group to be a breath of fresh air in a rather 
suffocating music industry. The 1 1 -track 
debut album is something special. Mr. 
Reality has a lot going for them. 

They own a very pure and clean style. 
The trio mainly uses full guitar chords, 
opposed to finger- or signal-note picking. 

This is behind their free-spirited, clean 
and clear vocal melodies and chord stack- 
ing harmonies built upon the root note of 
the chord. But on a few occasions they do 
first and second inversions 

Mr. Reality's debut disc, simply en- 
titled, "Mr. Reality," is very raw. There 
aren't any "guitar tech effects," to make 
the guitar sound better than it really is, or 
"mike reverb tricks," to hide any vocal 
imperfections. This record is pure talent 
and because of that it should keep them 
around a while, and take them from little 
clubs like New York City's CBGB's 

through arenas, up to places like New 
Jersey's Meadowlands. It's easy to listen 
to and understand. 

This is a very young adult disc. It's full 
of honesty and beauty. Though this entire 
disc is worth listening to, it's the middle 
that will sell this record. 

Track 3, "In My Yard," is about going 
back to the rocking horse of your youth. 
It's a song about the good ol' days of 
growing up(l'm a sucker for those lypesof 
tunes, especially when they're as good as 
this one,) while track 4, "My Guns," is the 

heart-tugging lament of a soldier who is 
caught in his deepest moments. 

The fifth tune, "Jess," is a simple track 
about a girlfriend or sister. This track is 
held together by the chorus' strong chord 
harmonies. I'd love to grab a copy of this 
song done acapella. 

Track 6, "Fourth of July," has a rather 
commercial guitar country-western style 
to it, somewhat like Bon Jovi's "Wanted 
Dead or Alive" does. It also comes com- 
plete with a story line about a Skid Row 
drug user named Johnny who was mur- 
dered and thrown into the Hudson River. 
This song is their deepest. 

"Wailing for September," which may be 
ihe most commercial (if that can be deter- 
mined), is really catchy. I mean really 
catchy. I can definitely seeing this coming 
through my stereo on a lazy Sunday after- 
noon after church. 

REASON TO BUY: It's good. It's new. 
It's different. It's clean. It's clear. It's hon- 
est It's commercial, but it won't bum out 
when the next big trend or gimmick rolls in. 
It's also not one ol those discs that you'll 
listen to for a week, then slick it on the shelf 
'til the end of time. Tracks 3 through 7 
move this album from "they'll only 
get better," to "these guys should be 
bigger than they are right now." I 
think ii's worth buying. 
REASON TO CRY: Id like to 
hear a cover tune, just to be able to 
hear how they would handle and 
revise a tune they didn't create. 
Something like Jeffery Gaines' 
"Hero in Me," a Pixie or Indigo 
tune. But I'm glad they didn't waste 
a track doing that 

I'd like to hear more secondary 
vocal lines, sweeping over the origi- 
nal vocal track. This under-used 
technique would have developed a 
more distinguishable and original 
style for the trio. Also, if handled 
properly, it would have made the songs 
stronger and even more catchy. 
THE FINAL WORDS: This is good. 
They'll get bigger. Not overnight. But 
they ' 11 get bigger. Melodies and harmonies 
are their strong points. They 're so good that 
this disc would have been cool acapella. 

I think this album will attract an audience 
made of mostly females in their 20s be- 
cause of it's rather laid-back tunes, sensi- 
tive lyrics and the way they handle their 

This is the perfect disc to have blasting in 
your car as you make your way home for 
Thanksgiving break.

Walk 'n' roll or run with Hard Rock for homeless 

By Gerhard D. Jodwischat 


If you want to have a day in the sun and 
help out the homeless at the same time, 
you may want to check out the Hard Rock 
Cafe's third annual rock n' roll run/walk. 
The event is a 5k (3.3 mile) run/walk, 
which will benefit St. Vincent De Paul 
Center. The center is a homeless shelter 
and meal distribuuon center in San Diego 
County. Father Joe Carrol, the center's 
director, has worked urelessly over the 
years helping provide food and shelter for 
homeless people. Sl Vincent provides 
2,500 meals daily and shelters about 500 
people per night. 

As you can imagine, feeding and hous- 
ing that many people requires a great deal of 
money. Most of the shelters support comes 
from private donations and the proceeds 
from the annual rock 'n' roll run. This year 
they need as many participants as possible 
so Father Joe can continue this wonderful 

According to Kathy Loper, the events 
director for the run, " The course is beauti- 
fully scenic. It takes you down into La Jolla 
cove and you run parallel to the ocean along 
the cliffs." She also added; " Not only do 
you get to have fun and help people, it's a 
great way to bum off your Thanksgiving 

If you would like to participate but you 

don't think that you are up to a 5k run, they 
will also be having a 1-mile fun run/walk. 
(There goes your excuse!) 

All participants will receive a Hard Rock 
5k T-shirt as well as admission to a party 
afterward at the Hard Rock Cafe. They will 
have food, drinks and drawings for CDs 
concert tickets and other assorted prizes 
The grand prize drawing will be for a trip 
for two to Hawaii. There will also be awards 
for the lop finishers in each of the 12 age 
categories for both the 5k- and 1 -mileevents. 

The rock 'n' roll run takes place on Nov. 
28 starting at the Hard Rock Cafe in La 
Jolla. It will take between two and two and 
a half hours to drive there from campus, so 
be sure to leave early. RegistraUon will take 

place between 5:30 and 7: 1 5 a.m. on the 28. 
The cost is S19 for the 5k and S15 for the 1- 
mile fun run. You can save S3 off of either 
price if you pre-register by mail before Nov. 

So dust off your running shoes, round up 
your friends and head on down. It's sure to be 
a fun day for all. You can enjoy die ocean 
views, meet new people and, best of all, have 
me satisfaction of knowing that your partici- 
pation helped someone less fortunate man 

To register or gel direcuons, you can call

Sugar Cubes give a 
short, shocking and 
rather shallow show 

By Betina Nanzke 


My friends and I went to the Sugar Cubes 
concert Oct. 29 at the Ventura Theater. We 
arrived late, on purpose (of course). We had 
decided to skip the opening act because we 
heard that they were supposed to be horrible. 
As for the Sugar Cubes, they performed in 
a rather small theater, but the audience was 
still small. They played several of their bet- 
ter-known songs: "Regina," "Walkabout" and 

The performance was good except that the 
keyboard player lacked enthusiasm. Without 
the spunk of Einar and the other singer, the 
show would have been dead. 

The band exemplified a fashion catalog 
representing high fashion and casual wear. 
The women of the group were extremely 
fashion-conscious because they wore top-of- 
the-line outfits. 

One wore a black, shiny-leather zip-up 
miniskirt suit while the other had a green- 
sequened tank -and- shorts ensemble with 
fringes on the edge. For the guys, sporting a 
simple T-shirt and pants was enough to please 
the crowd. 

What was most disappointing was that the 
show was just 45 minutes long. To me, that's 
cutting it really short The audience came to 
their concert expecting to be entertained for 
at least a good hour. 

Another thing that turned me off was the 
smoking policy that the security guards were 
upholding. The staff of the theater walked 
around asking the people who were smoking 
to step out into the foyer and then come in 
after their smoke. 

The place was filled with smoke despite 
their effort since the band members them- 
selves kept lighting one cigarette after an- 
other. As if that wasn't enough, they drank in 
between puffs. 
Unexpectedly, toward the end of the show, 

the drummer came out from behind his 
drums and said that "smoking and drink- 
ing are good for you. Whatever they've 
told you in America is a lie." That was an 
unexpected comment. 

With the exception of a few people, the 
audience was quite mellow. One particu- 
lar concert freak was bouncing across the 
dance floor. Another decided to catch the 
band's attention by running up on stage to 
steal a kiss from Einar, the lead singer. The 
crowd went wild with laughter. To dampen 
the scene, security yanked him off the 
stage. This was one of the highlights of the 

The crowd got louder toward the end of 
the show. Then it was over. Most of the 
people seemed satisfied with the perfor- 
mance, however. 
On the way out plenty of people bought 
concert shirts that displayed exploding 
love cells on the front and back. It was an 
unusual, but daring, print 
A few sidelights: 

Arriving late did have its advantages. 
One member of our group spotted a bus 
and recognized instantly that it was the 
charter bus of the band. We borrowed a 
pen from the ticket booth and waited pa- 
tiently by the bus to try to get a few 

We got three signatures each from the 
two singers and the keyboard player. We 
missed the rest of the group because we 
did not recognize them right away. 

Those autographs may prove valuable 
because there are strong rumors that the 
band may be breaking up. Reportedly, 
they are not getting along well lately. One 
of them even said after performing at a U2 
concert, "We were the Sugar Cubes." 
Einar, whom all the guys seem to adore, 
is also supposedly seeing one of the disc 
jockeys from a popular radio station in Los

Snipes' latest flight 
crashes on screen 

Bad script forces 'Flight 57' to crash land 

By Mike GretchokofT 


Does it make sense to transport an in- 
dicted terrorist aboard a commercial 
airl iner? What i f the terrorist had a warped 
childhood who made a living bombing 
airliners in the first place, then would it 
make sense? 

It would only make sense if there just 
happened to be a bitter ex-cop on board 
who hocked his police career to be a 
security specialist for the airlines, right? 
This way, if a terrorist by chance hap- 
pened to hijack an airplane, someone 
would be there to save the day. 

As ridiculous as this scenario sounds, 
it's the plot for the Warner Brothers re- 
lease "Passenger 57" starring Wesley 

Snipes plays John Cutter, the security 
specialist aboard Flight 163 who battles 
the evil terrorist (Bruce Payne in a film 
that is even more far-fetched than "Die 
Hard 2.") 

Leading up to the climactic ending that 
the audience already knows before see- 

ing the movie, cop and killer exchange 
cornball threats and snappy jokes until 
the good guy wins. Of course, the good 
guy is only able to save the day because 
everyone else involved in the rescue ef- 
fort is totally incompetent, to put it nicely . 
Snipes is an extraordinary actor but 
director Kevin Hook's picture does not 
do justice for the actor, a big box office 

I will admit the stunt work was excel- 
lent as was the music, performed by jazz 
bassist Stanley Clarke. However, the 
movie was poorly written and was not 
well thought out 

Why is Snipes' character, an ex-cop, 
driving a shiny red convertible Corvette? 
How many ex-cops in the movies drive 
Corvettes? Also, how come when Snipes 
and Payne are exchanging bullets aboard 
the plane like they're going out of style, 
the cabin pressure remains secure? 

If you love action movies regardless of 
their plots and you are a passionate Wesley 
Snipes fan, you might want to see the 
movie just to be able to say "I've seen 
every Wesley Snipes movie ever made." 

After all, that's why I went to see iL

1992-93 Fall athletics come to anlOI^I 
end but not the CLU athletic pep club 

By Gretchen Gies 


The fall 1992-93 athletic season is near- 
ing the end. While Regal and Kingsmen 
basketball players break in their new 
hightops the fall sports are, or will be soon, 
retiring their shoes. 

In retrospect, this fall has proven to be 
another proud year for CLU. Kingsmen 
football pulled of fan exciting win on Home- 
coming and have been a relatively competi- 
tive team. 

Men's and women's cross country has 
proven that "only the strong survive" with 
heartfelt dedication despite the lack of wins. 

Volleyball has a new young look and a 
bright future with talent in the making. 

And, of course, George Kuntz and his 
amazing men's and women's soccer teams 
continue to make history in the CLU record 

Yet, there is an aspect of CLU athletics 
that has not been elevated enough. Entering 
the picture this year is overwhelming sup- 
port by the Pep Athletic Commissioner 
Michelle Milius, Pep Club, cheerleaders 
and, of course, the dedicated CLU fans. 

Milius and her committee has success- 
fully promoted spirit around campus. 

I am periodically informed about sched- 
uled games by the highly visible posters in 

the caf without having to drop by and 
bother the athletic office for another sched- 
ule. Me and others alike, appreciate the 
weekly win loss updates with the same 
strategically placed posters. All of this en- 
thusiasm was highlighted early in the 
season with a Homecoming kickoff rally. 
Next, who can dispute the enthusiasm of 
our new cheer squad? Holy Cow! A begin- 
ning team of four women has grown with an 
addition of seven men. 

Special congratulations should be given 
to those fans who make the wins great and 
the losses bearable. Often, it's the fan who 
can be that extra inspiration for the team. 

(Take for example the Denver Bronco 
fans. These die hards will bear all the 
elements and endure frostbite just to sit in 
Mile High Stadium). I can't argue that CLU 
fans are dedicated to that extent, but I do 
know that they feel each and every loss the 
athlete or the coach does. 

Most inspirational are the parents who 
travel just a couple blocks or many miles 
simply to watch their daughter or son par- 
ticipate for a couple of hours. Words cannot 
describe the appreciation that an athlete 
feels when he or she looks to the stands or 
sidelines and sees their proud parents. 

To all the players and fans out there giv- 
ing their all to the Purple and Gold, this 
Kool- Aid's for you!

By Gretchen Gies 


The CLU men's and women's soccer sea- 
sons did not end on good notes. Both teams

CLU basketball teams begin seasons this week 

Kingsmen's hopes high 
despite injuries, loss of 
deLaveaga, O'Donnell 

By Charlie Flora 


Hampered with three early injuries and 
faced w ith the absence of last season ' s t wo 
leading scorers, the reigning SCI AC-cham- 
pion Kingsmen basketball team's expecta- 
tions - nonetheless - are still high going 
into its first game Friday at the Menlo 
College Tournament. 

Junior forward Joe Cohen, sophomore 
center Mike Fenton and freshman hopeful 
Brian Welch are all out with injury and last 
year's two leading scorers, Jeff deLaveaga 
and Simon O'Donell, both finished off 
their last year of eligibility last season. 

'Tor us, we are not going to try to fill the 
holes," said Mike Dunlap, in his fourth 
year as head coach. "We are going to make 
the changes necessary and balance the scor- 
ing a little bit belter. We are going to go 
after the ball more and play aggressive on 

DeLaveaga, who is playing professional 
basketball in Australia with the Canberra 
Gunners, andcenterSimonO'Donnell were 
the main contributors for the Kingsmen 
last season with their combined 45-point- 
per-game average. DeLaveaga averaged 
29.5, 0'Donnell scored 15.4 and averaged 
7.5 rebounds. 

Cohen, one of the more improved players 
returning from last season, is now out in- 
definitely as he awaits operation on his 
right shin. 
Fenton, who is out with a broken foot. 

won ' t be able to play until the second week 
of January. 

Welch, who played at Wickenburg High 
School in Arizona, was forced to redshirt 
this season as he tore ligaments in his knee 
at an all-star game July 31. Welch was to 
vie for the starting point guard position. 

Besides the injuries, this year will also 
mark the end of the era of a single Kingsman 
player accounting for 30 or more of the 
team's points per game. 

The deLaveagas, Jeff (29 career ppg 
average) and Steve (33), each gave the 
Kingsmen a consistent offensive threat for 
seven straight years. Steve played from 
1985 to 1990 and Jeff played from 1990 
through 1992 after redshirting his fresh- 
man year. 

And with the deLaveaga scoring threat 
vanished, the inexperience of the new play- 
ers and the absence of last year's power 
center , this year may take a litde longer for 
the Kingsmen to find their game. 

But starting slow is not necessarily a bad 
thing for the Kingsmen. Take last year, for 

The Kingsmen got off to a sluggish 3-7 
start before making a run in the second half 
of the season. CLU won the league title, 
upset favorite UC San Diego in the second 
round of the NCAA Division III playoffs 
before losing to Otterbein College in the 
sectionals in Minnesota. 

Still playoffs may be a long shot for the 
this year's team as SCIAC competition 
will be fierce, Dunlap said. 

Occidental, the overwhelming favorite 
to win SCIAC, and Redlands, who fin- 
ished a close second behind the Kingsmen 
last season, are being picked as this year's 
top teams.

Coach Davis has high 
expectations; team motto is 
'rise to the challenge' 

By Vanessa Martin 


The women's basketball team gains new 
players and new talent this year as it looks 
forward with a positive outlook on acheiving 
a successful season. The team hopes they can 
leave behind last year's rough season in order 
to face their opponents with a more competi- 
tive style. 

Kecia Davis, in her second year coaching 
basketball at CLU, feels that her team has 
more depth and talent this year. The squad is 
composed of 1 1 freshman players, as well as 
junior returner Kristin Wegner, and senior 
captains Tania Love and Evelyn Albert. 
Albert, an Academic Ail-American, was the 
leading scorer last year. 

"Evelyn is definitely a team leader," 
statedDavis, who expects her captains to do a 
thorough job of leading the team. 

Other players to look for this year besides 
the returners are freshman newcomers Aimee 
Snider and Nicole Albert. 

"We actually now have experienced play- 
ers at their positions. Because they are more 
experienced than last year, they will be able 
to play more competitively," said Davis. She 
feels that her bench is strong as well, which 
will make it easy for her team to play together 

Competition will be tough this year against 
SCIAC opponents, but Davis feels that play- 
ing against such a variety of teams will only 
make her team grow stronger. 

The motto of the team this year is "Rise to 
the Challenge" which , according to Davis, 

means that "the team will rise to a new level 
each day, and always do better than they did 
the day before." 

Every game will be a new challenge for 
the team, but they will doall dial is possible 
to overcome that challenge by playing their 
hardest. "We have a lot of team unity, and 
one main goal, and that is to perform well 
and most importantly — win," stated Davis 
with a positive smile.

Volleyball match cancellation spurs priority evalutation 

I don't really want to eat away at the fact 
that our athletic facilities are horrible and 
need improvement soon, but I will any- 

What a scary seems that 
what very little facilities we have, whether 
it be athletic or academic, it seems as 
though our community has first right to 
use them. ..Why? 

Who supports this university, the com- 
munity or the students. Last time I looked 
at the report, it seems to show that, yes, the 
community does bring in a nice chunk of 
revenue, but it's still some 80-85 percent 
below what the students give. Who should 
have the first rights now? 

This is completely wrong, when the 
students who support CLU don't even 
have first crack at the use of its facilities 
(at least what facilities CLU has). Don't 
misunderstand me here, I fully agree that 

Rick W. Wilson 
Sports Editor 


we should share some of our facilities with 
the community, to greet them and earn 
their support and show them what a great 
place this is, but does the community even 
respect our efforts? We can only go so far. 
Take for example the radio tower, was 
the community backing us up on this?...l 
think noL This would have and still can be 
a facility which can benefit us both in 
many aspects. Yet as a local university we 
try to make everyone (the community, the 
planning commission, etc.) happy by 
changing the location (in which the first 
location is on the university's land in the 

first place) to please the community and we 
still seem to get about as much community 
support as a fire hydrant gets when a dog 
stops by, that is unless the community gets 
something out of it. Yes, I do know that there 
are a large amount of community members 
who back up the university in all it does, but 
that small amount hurts all of us who try so 
hard to make things perfect. 

Maybe 1 am wrong here, but I seem to get 
the feeling that "OUR" community is taking 
full advantage of the situations, while CLU 
(otherwise known as McFly from "Back to 
the Future") is just sitting around here getting 
milked for what it is worth. It's ridiculous 
when your school's volleyball team gets 
booted out of its own gym for the Conejo 
Symphony to practice. 

How does this make the team feel? How 
does it make the coach feel? Or how about 
this, does this show how the school feels 

about its volleyball team? 

Or, hypothetically speaking, what if 
the Kingsmen basketball team had a game 
on this night. Would the game go on or 
would the practice...You make the call. 
As an up-and-coming university, CLU 
needs to start standing on its own two feet 
and get out of its wimpy mode, take 
chances. JustliketheUnitedSiates.CLU 
needs a change (in certain places of 
course) and soon. CLU needs to take 
steps up and forward , not down and back- 
ward. Maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to 
vote for the CLU administration the same 
way it votes for Homecoming Court or 
for its Class Officers, (maybe some people 
wouldn't like that though). 

What happens when CLU doesn't up- 
grade its athletic facilities, will they get 
booted from the SCIAC? This is a whole 
other story, but just think about it.

Police break up campus food fight 

By Joel Ervice 


A food fight in the cafeteria that got out of 
hand Friday evening resulted in Ventura 
County sheriffs deputies being called to 
campus and one person being ticketed. 
Following the traditional off-campus "keg- 
off," several CLU students started two food 
fights in the cafeteria, prompting Campus 
Security to call in authorities. One student 
was ticketed on charges of battery and the 
crowd of about 100 students was dispersed 
for unlawful assembly after seven police 
cars arrived at the scene, according to Sgt. de 
los Santos of the Ventura County Sheriffs 

"Keg-Off , 92, M was held at the Spring 
Meadow Park, a few blocks from the CLU 
campus and drew about 170 people. The 
drinking competition pits four teams of 30 
drinkers. The teams are comprised of resi- 
dents of the New West residence halls (East, 
West, North and South halls), Old West 
(Conejo, Janss, Af ton and Rasmussen halls), 
the Ghetto (Mountclef, Pederson and 
Thompson halls), and this year's super group 
made up of commuter students and alumni. 

When the keg-off ended, most of the stu- 
dents returned to the CLU cafeteria. After a 
few rowdy minutes, someone started throw- 
ing food. The result was an extended volley 
between seven or eight students that in- 
cluded dishes being thrown. 

"All I know is I went down there . . . and 
then there were food fights," said freshman 
Bekkah Snider. "It was out of control. Ev- 
eryone was fighting."

who asked to remain anonymous, said she 
tried to get the attention of a friend, who was 
sitting at a nearby table. She tossed a cherry 
tomato and the second food fight ensued. 
"It's amazing what one little cherry tomato 
can do," she commented. 

A police officer arrived during the second 
food fight. At this point, Erik Lundring, a 
junior, threw a slice of lemon. According to 
Lundring, he was aiming for his friends 
when a security officer walked in front of 
the lemon and was struck. Lundring was 
then taken upstairs out of the cafeteria as 
more police arrived. 

The presence of the police dulled the food 
fight, but a fist fight broke out between two 
students. Another student stepped in to break 
up the fight. Comments were later made 
that the police did nothing to stop the fight. 
"The cop was just standing there, watch- 
ing," said another student who asked to 
remain anonymous. 

Police ushered everyone out of the cafete- 
ria, leaving it in such a mess it took the 
janitorial staff several hours to clean up. 

"It's disgusting," Violeta Lewis, a cafete-

Students gathered around as several more 
police officers arrived, bringing the reported 
total to seven. Several students got in fierce

Looking back: CLU's strict dress code of the 1960s 

By Heidi Rateman 


When you get dressed in die morning, 
have you ever wondered if you could get in 
trouble for violating Cal Lu's dress code 
policy? Probably not. This is because CLU 
has not had a dress code policy for over 20 

Ronald Kragthorpc, dean of Student Af- 
fairs said student dress has never been a 
concern, because "the students here dress 
relatively conservatively." Since 1972, when 
he came to CLU, Kragthorpe cannot re- 
member any dress code being enforced. 

But let's go back to the '60s and relish in 

the nostalgia of dress when women wore 
dresses to school and men had butch hair- 

Only three years after CLU opened in 
1961 , a dress code established standards of 
attire for the students of the 1964-65 school 
year. According to "The Pioneer" hand- 
book, footwear had to always be worn in 
the classrooms, the library, the College 
Union, the lounges, and the cafeteria. It 
also slated that "Barefoot living must be 
confined to the out-of-doors and to free 

For men that year, Sunday morning dress 
was a must. A jacket, trousers, shirt and lie 
or dressy sport shirt were included as the 

required wear for Sunday dress. The same 
was required for the Wednesday evening 
meal and again on Sunday up until the noon 

Since public protocol was a mandate in 
the "60s, it is no wonder that in the 1965-66 
and 1966-67 school years, the dress code 
was expanded to include proper rules about 
formal dress and courtesy. 

At the time, formal dress included a tux- 
edo or a dark suit with a suitable tie. "The 
Pioneer" handbook goes on to say, "In a 
college community there are many invita- 
tions to attend events and activities, which 
call for a personal response. Whenever 
there is an R.S.V.P. at the close of your 

invitation, make sure that you display the 
marks of courtesy and good breeding. Make 
an appropriate reply." 

By the 1967-68 school y^ar, the dress 
code firmly established which clothes could 
be wom and at what times they could be 

For men, campus clothes such as foot- 
wear, trousers and shirts could be worn 
Monday through Friday. Shorts; which at 
the time were called bermudas; sweaters 
and T-shirts could only be wom on Friday 
evening and Saturdays. On Sundays, cam- 
pus clothes were demanded. 
Campus clothes for women consisted of

Ritterbush says gender bias still exists in textbooks 

By Katie Payne 


Dr. Linda Ritterbush spoke at the Brown 
Bag Series on "Gender Bias in Public 
School Textbooks: How to Recognize and 
Change It," on Nov. 17 in the Women's 
Resource Center. 

As an example, Ritterbush asked every- 
one to visualize a zebra, an enchilada and 
a scientist. When she asked everyone to 
describe their picture of the scientist, many 
of the women responded that their idea 
was of a man. 

When asked why the audience saw a 
man, many responded that they got their 
ideas from books they had read in school. 
"For the children of today , the mass media 
is to blame for the way scientists are 
depicted as men," said Ritterbush. 

Ritterbush then moved on to the subject 

of how books portray different ethnic groups, 
disabled people and men and women, stal- 
ing that she has worked with a Legal Com- 
pliance Committee, which "has to do with 
approving textbooks on the state level." 

Regarding her involvement with this group, 
she said, "I was really acting as a citizen on 
this committee." 

The committee, in conjunction with 
California's Board of Education, looks at 
social content in textbooks that are submit- 
ted for state approval. If the books aren't 
approved, they do not make the stale's list. 
Because California is such a large part of the 
textbook market , an unapproved book means 
a large decrease in the profits for textbook 

Ritterbush, who is part of the university's 
Geology Departmen t, explained that the state 
allots money to school districts to buy books. 
Of that money, 80 percent is used to buy 

chase other types of books. 

State -approved textbooks must show dif- 
ferent age groups, ethnic groups and dis- 
abled persons in a variety of activities. They 
must also show an equal number of men and 
women, which according to Ritterbush, 
doesn't always happen. 

There are "a tremendous number of cita- 
tions on the gender issue," she said. 
Ritterbush showed slides of different text- 
books and even CLU's caialog as examples 
of the gender issue. Men were shown as 
being active and athletic and women were 
shown as being passive and social. 

"You can find this kind of thing any- 
where," Ritterbush said. 

The Legal Compliance Committee re- 

Dr. Linda Ritterbush ceives thousands of applications for posi- 

books that are approved by the state. The lions like the one Ritterbush holds. She said 

rest of the money, as well as any money she critiqued science books because of the 

raised by the school, can be used to pur- image people hold about scientists. 

CLU appoints five convocators to three-year terms 

By Maristella Contreras 


CLU President Luther Luedtke has 
named five new convocators,. 

The Rev. Kathleen Ricker of Christ 
Lutheran Church in Downey, Alice 
Hartman of Penasquitos Lutheran Church 
in San Diego, Mary Wayne of the New 
Covenant Lutheran Church in Scottsdale, 
the Rev. Ron Johnstad of Mount Hope 
Lutheran in El Paso and Carolyn Mont- 

gomery of St. Timothy Lutheran Church in 
Albuquerque were named as CLU 
convocators by Luedtke. 

The Rev. David Davidson of Thousand 
Oaks was elected to serve as an at-large 
convocator. Dr. A. Joseph Everson, Dr. 
James Fonseca and Dr. Margot Michels 
were chosen as faculty appointees. 

The position of convocator is held for 
three years, according to Luedtke. A person 
becomes a convocator is by either being 
ratified by a synod council or elected by a 

home synod assembly. These gatherings 
are held once a year. 

The convocators serve as ambassadors to 
their own area. Their responsibilities are to 
elect the Board of Regents, CLU's govern- 
ing body. This is one of the more important 
jobs; other duties include finding potential 
financial donors for the school and recruit- 
ing students to come to CLU. 

CLU is the only four-year liberal arts 
school that belongs to the Evangelical 
Lutheran Church in America. There are a 

total of 75 convocators. Of these, five are 
bishops and 20 are community members, 
faculty and students. 

A convocator can either be a member of 
the clergy or a lay person. Minority repre- 
sentation is also very important. 

"Convocators are very important in the 
Lutheran Church and also toCLU," Luedtke 
said. He added, "They are spiritual support- 
ers, recruiters and fund-raisers. They con- 
tinue to work hard and bring excellence to 

"Naked Guy," part I 

Andrew Martinez, 19, was suspended 
from the University of California at Ber- 
keley after the sophomore attended a 
meeting with school administrators — 
nude, of course — to discuss his negative 
attitude attire. 

The university recently banned public 
nudity on campus in response to 
Martinez's efforts to promise his naked- 
ness as a form of free speech. 

According to campus police, Martinez 
was arrested twice in October for stroll- 
ing and jogging around the campus with- 
out clothing/ The student also led a Sept. 
29 "nude-in" in which he and a couple of 
dozen supporters stripped in protest at a 
campus plaza. 

Naked biker, part II 

When a naked University of New 
Mexico student gleefully biked through 
the streets of a California town last spring, 
he had no idea the joy ride would end in 
road rash and a lawsuit against the police 

While on Spring Break in San Luis 
^Obispo last March, Glen Westergren, 23, 


stripped off his clothes and joined three 
also-bare cyclists, in a ride that was in- 
tended, according to the quartet, "to impro- 
vise a new mating ritual." 

After gathering an audience from local 
bars and clubs, the four bicycled furiously 
for two blocks, then all but Westergren 
came to a quick stop when Officer John 
Pfiefer turned his police car headlights on 

Pfiefer continued to chase Westergren, 
telling him over the car's public address 
system to stop. Then Pfeifer's patrol car 
struck the cyclist 

"I heard him downshift" Westergren told 
the University of New Mexico Daily Lobo. 
"The next thing I knew I was flying through 
the air." 

Westergren, who was not charged in the 
incident, ended up at a local hospital with 
stitches and road-rash wounds. Because he 
would not respond to police questioning, he 
says, his bike was impounded. 

Pfeifer was released without comment 

from the San Luis Obispo Police Depart- 
ment 10 days after the incident 

Westergren, who contends he was delib- 
erately hit by the police car, is suing the San 
Luis Obispo Police Department for 
$100,000 in damages. The case was ex- 
pected to go to trial within six months. 

Austrian student 
makes 10,000 calls 

A spurned college student in Austria has 
admitted making more than 10,000 harass- 
ing telephone calls totaling $30,000 to 
Harvard University students. 

The Austrian student, who would dial the 
Harvard prefix and then random four-digit 
numbers, called an average of 10 students a 
day over the past three years, and some- 
limes would threaten to kill women who 
answered the phone. He was finally identi- 
fied when a female student told Harvard 
police she suspected the caller might be a 
student she met in 1989. 

Officials doubt that legal action can be 
en because of international red tape, 
tectives located the caller in Austria 

d recommended to his family that he 
receive therapy for his behavior. 

George Bush's next 
job: Yale President? 

George Bush, U.S. president Republi- 
can, Yale '48, will be out of work on Jan. 
20, 1993. 

Conversely, Yale University is conduct- 
ing a massive search for a new president 
A match made in heaven? 

"It is only rumor," said Yale spokes- 
woman Martha Malzke. A 10-person 
search committee is looking for a replace- 
ment for the former Yale President Benno 
C. Schmidt Jr. About 300 names have been 
sent to the committee, and Matzke said it 
could be possible that Bush's name is on 
the list However, the members are work- 
ing under strict con f iden tiality , so whether 
or not Bush is on the list is not known. 

Another Yale alum mentioned? Presi- 
dent-elect Bill Clinton, law, class of 1973. 
He, however, has a new job.

Kragthorpe suggests Senate purchase 
videos; knight voted new CLU mascot 

NmrllllMT 23. I M*^2 

By Amy Dale 


Ronald Kragthorpe, CLU's dean of Stu- 
dent Affairs, suggested that the Senate con- 
sider purchasing its videos rather than 
spending close to $250 per movie, which 
are shown in the Student Union Building 
on Wednesday and Sunday nights. 

This would also enable the Senate to 
establish a campus film library, Kragthorpe 
said, adding that films only run about S25 
per title. 

Apparently student movies such as 
"Beauty and the Beast" cost the Senate 
about $250 to show for two nights. "Beauty 
and the Beast" is a Disney film and was 
more expensive than some of the others 
shown, however. 

Pep Athletics Commissioner Michelle 
Mi lius announced the new CLU mascot will 
be a knight Milius said she is excited about 
the choice and is still working on the details. 

The craft fair is scheduled for the week of 
Dec. 1 -4 and will be located in the cafeteria. 
ASCLU President Jason Russell said the 
cafeteria may be slightly crowded during 
the craft fair but feels that students will be 
happy with (he items available. 

The Senate will be receiving 10 percent of 
the craft fair proceeds, and Russell sug- 
gested using the money to lower the cost of 
the Spring formal so that the money could 
benefit many students. 

ASCLU Vice President Krisline Strand 
invited anyone interested in scuba diving to 
join the new scuba club. 

The Senate discussed the possibility of a 

different senior gift for the class of '93 since 
the lit sign to go in front of the sports center 
may not be possible. 

Two new ideas were suggested but not yet 
decided upon. The first was to buy new 
chairs for Nygreen Hall, and the second was 
to put the money toward the future campus 
fiber optic system. 

A represeniative from the CLU Alumni 
Association spoke as a guest at the Senate 
meeting and encouraged all CLU students 
to consider joining the Alumni Association. 
It was mentioned that students don ' t have to 
have an alumni parent to join this organiza- 

The Alumni Association will hold its next 
meeting on Dec . 2 at 6:30 pm in Conejo Hall

dresses, skirts, blouses and sweaters. Like 
the men, only on Friday evenings and Sat- 
urdays could casual clothes be worn. These 
included slacks, bermudas, sweatshirts, and 
other casual clothes. If a student was ever 
found wearing a bathing suit, gym shorts, 
short shorts (women) or bare feet they 

would be refused service. These items of 
clothing were found improper at all times. 
By the end of the '60s, the dress code 
became limited to women. 

Kragthorpe said that, at the time, all 
schools had different regulations for women. 
However, he felt the dress code, "was de- 
meaning and stupid, but some of it was well- 

In the 1969-70 and 1970-71 school years, 
campus clothes were expanded to include 
flats, sandals, tennis shoes, dresses, skirts, 

blouses and sweaters. 

Campus clothes, along with casual wear, 
which included capris and bermudas, could 
be worn to class, in the Dining Hall and to 
athletic events and dances. 

Women were forbidden to wear rollers in 
their hair outside of their Hall, in the foyer 
or in the lounge until after hours. 

After 1971, "The Pioneer" no longer re- 
ferred to a dress code, so apparently it was 
abolished in the early 70s. 

"It was a funny dress code," the dean said. 

Continued from page 1 

shouting matches with both security and 
the police over Lundring's detainment. 
Citing unlawful assembly, the crowd of 
students was dispersed. According to De 
Los Santos, unlawful assembly is "when- 
ever two or more persons have assembled 
together to do an unlawful act, or to do a 
lawful act in a violent, boisterous, or 
tumultuous manner, such assembly is an 
unlawful assembly." 

Lundring was later given a ticket for 
battery, then released. 

"People got way out of hand. I under- 
stand where the security guard was com- 
ing from. I feel bad for the Marriott 
employeess mat had to clean up. Every- 
one should have had to clean up," Lundring 

Security was unable to discuss the inci- 
dent on the Saturday and Sunday follow- 
ing the incident. 

Ronald Kragthorpe, dean of Student 
Affairs, said punative measures will be 
taken when he receives more information 
regarding the incident. 

"I don't know what the repercussions 
will be at mis point," Kragthorpe said. "It 
could range anywhere from a $50 fine 
and (making) bag lunches, suspension 
from school to expulsion." 

Students who have their dining room 
privileges revoked are allowed to take 
bag lunches outside the cafeteria.

Rotaract serves CLU and community 

By Amy Walz 


Of the many clubs on campus, one is 
Rotaract, a college version of the Rotary 
club. At CLU, more than 60 students have 
joined Rotaract in an effort to provide 
service to the school and to the commu- 

Vice president of the club, Ryan Gott, 
comments that Rotary "likes to balance 
community, school, and the world." 

Most recently. Rotary held a Thanks- 
giving Party at CLU with crafts and games 
for Via Esperanza, a home for mentally 
retarded people. 

Other events have included helping at 
the Ventura County Soup kitchen, a 
Thanksgiving party at the Cerebral Palsy 
House, and helping with other clubs at the 

Oktoberfest and Streetfair. 

Each year the club collects funds to give 
something to the school. On order from last 
year is an on-campus telephone to be in- 
stalled in the library. 

In 1987-88, Rotaract installed Bucholz 
Walk, the cement path winding behind Mt. 
Clef Residence Hall to Memorial Parkway. 
Last year the club received a fellowship 
award from CLU. 

One of the largest events held this year will 
be the club's third annual trip to Mexico on 
Dec. 4-6. It is a two part series, which will

an experience to learn about a different cul- 

ture, Rotaract will live with the 30 chil- 
dren, and assess their needs and wants. 

During the months following the trip, 
they will raise funds for building supplies 
and return with with those supplies in the

Volunteer Center awarded grant 

Aid Association for Lutherans has 
awarded a $ 1 0,000 grant to the University 
Volunteer Center. The award was an- 
nounced on National Philanthropy Day, 
Nov. 1 8, during the weekly chapel service. 

The grant from the Appleton.Wis.-based 
organization will be used to support the 
overall operations of the center and its 
activities, and will enable the center to 
secure a part-time professional to oversee 
the center and provide volunteer training. 

"On National Philanthropy Day and ev- 
ery day, we at Cal Lutheran are mindful of 
the gifts the university has received through 
the generosity of others," said Melanie 
Hudes, acting director of student activi- 

With the help of AAL, the University 
Volunteer Center will be able to expand 
the help it provides to non-profit agencies 
in the surrounding communities." 

The Volunteer Center opened in Febru- 

ary 1992. The center, which is staffed by 
students, matches volunteers to requests 
from community groups. 

The center was developed to aid commu- 
nity groups and enable students to strengthen 
their organizational and leadership skills. 

It also provides students with opportuni- 
ties to learn about viable career options that 
exist in community service, while gaining 
skills that are transferable to the job market. 

CLU's center has placed volunteers in a 
variety of local agencies including: the 
Braille Institute, the American Heart Asso- 
ciation, the American Diabetes Associa- 
tion, the Palmer Drug Abuse Program, the 
Boys and GirlsClubofSimi Valley, Conejo 
Youth Employment Service, the American 
Cancer Society of Ventura County, Conejo

Club promotes interaction 

By Shirley Docusian 


The Student Alumni Association is a new 
club on campus that works in conjunction 
with the Alumni Association. The club was 
created to give students an opportunity to 
interact with alumni. 

"The purpose of this organization shall be 
to lend services to the university through 
interaction with the Alumni Association 
and its programs," said Robin Privat, the 
Associate Director of Alumni and the ad- 
viser for the new Student Alumni. 

Privat said that the club will give students 
a chance to meet with alumni. "Alumni are 
accessible and so is the Alumni Office." 

Jennifer Dowling, vice president of the 
Student Alumni agrees. She believes that 
interaction with alumni can be beneficial to 
a student's future. "When students get out 
of college they could have connections to a 
job by knowing someone in their field,"she 
said. Thiscan be beneficial, especially since 
finding a job after college is a difficult task 

The difference between the Alumni As- 
sociation and the Student Alumni Associa- 
tion is that everyone who graduates is an 
alumni. The Student Alumni Association is 
a club where students can interact with 
alumni for advice, help, or just a listening 

The club was created by Privat when she 

realized that there was no Student Alumni 
on campus and and that it was a loss for the 
students not to have one. She began the 
process by writing letters to Legacy, an 
organization of parents of students who 
currently attend CLU, and to her student 
workers. Following this, the club started 

"Students have a perception of alums as 
old and just a fund-raising vehicle," said 
Privat. 'They're there to help students with 
open arms, but not many students want to 
use this opportunity to meet an alumni." 

The club is trying to get it's name out to 
students who may want to become in- 
volved. "It is hard to start a club," said 
Privat, "but we have a mission and we want 
people to join." 

The Alumni and Student Alumni Asso- 
ciations sponsor free events for students. 
For example, last year they sponsored Real 
World 101 and 102, a seminar dinner series 
that enabled students to interact with alumni 
socially and talk about jobs and career 

The Student Alumni meetings are open 
to everyone. The meetings are once a month 
for one hour. 

According to Dowling, "The meetings 
are not time consuming.When there are 
frequent meetings, the turnout declines af- 
ter each meeting as the year progresses. 
Between the meetings there are other events 
going on."

Campus dress codes and freedom of choice 

Lance T. Young 
Opinion Editor 

Just what is "unacceptable attire?" At 
Brigham Young University this includes 
short shorts and miniskirts, grubby jeans, 
beards for men (or women, I suppose) and 
earrings for men. "A clean and well taken 
care of appearance" (College Press Service 
Nov. 9, 1992) is what the folks at BYU 
strive for. Obviously the "naked man" from 
Berkeley would not fit in there. He might 
have some problems being accepted by the 
general populous in Provo. 

A dress code is also in effect at Liberty 
University in Lynchburg, Va. A spokes- 
man for Lynchburg says that "It's a Chris- 
tian school, so we believe students should 
dress like Christians." 

This raises interesting questions regard- 
ing exactly what "Christian dress" is and 
who decides it The Bible has perhaps be- 
come outdated in its regulation of current 

fashion. Written nearly 2,000 years ago, it 
could not foresee the rise in popularity of the 
miniskirt and the halter top. Christian schools 
have only the Bible's word concerning chas- 
tity to go by and this makes for some inter- 
esting interpretations. What is acceptable in 
one area of the country might not be in 
another. For example, a girl wearing a short 
skirt and a small revealing top would most 
likely not cause any outrage in the South 
Pacific, but put her into the middle of a tea 
party in Victorian England and she would 
shock the English so severely that it might 
have changed the course of their history. It 
seems then, that dress is relative to the 
situation. And relative is a tricky word. It 
leads to disagreements, etc. 

Another thing that the administrators of 
those Christian schools with dress codes 
must examine is the purpose and intent of 
the wearer. They must, in essence, read 
minds. Generally speaking, if the purpose of 
the clothing is to incite lust or to arouse 
people, this breaks the sexual morality of 
the Christian religion concerning chastity. 
Clothing that is worn without the purpose of 
arousing others can often do so anyway. So 

the decision makers at BYU must deter- 
mine whether or not certain articles (or 
lack of aforementioned articles) will be 
detrimental to the educational process at 
their school (i.e. Johnny won't be able to 
take notes in economic class what for star- 
ing at Henrietta's calves). 

An additional problem occurs when 
schools place bans on certain articles not for 
reasons concerning chastity but rather be- 
cause they think that it is "inappropriate" 
(earrings for men, beards, etc.). A spokes- 
man for BYU said that the students "must 
avoid extreme hairstyles" and that they 
"don't have any punkers with orange hair" 
on campus. Who is to say whether this is 
right or wrong? I haven't heard that the 
Lord has issued any recent ultimatums or 
guidelines on the wearing of beards, ear- 
rings or orange hair for men. This restric- 
tion forbidding such things at BYU was 
enacted in the early 1 960s when the manner 
of hair and dress was leaning to the liberal 
side. A spokesman for the school has said 
that "certain waysof dressing such as beards, 
beads and bangles reflected the counter- 
culture message that was not acceptable at 

a church-run school." 

I am not sure what the spokesman imag- 
ines the counter-culture message to be but 
he must not agree. Ultimately, the students 
who attend these conservative schools are 
aware of what they are getting into before 
they choose to attend. 

I see nothing wrong with a school wish- 
ing to maintain an atmosphere conducive 
to study and, however righteous it may 
seem, trying to run the campus as close to 
Christian ideals as possible. The problem 
lies in the relativity of the matter. And the 
conclusions of the administrators are some- 
times questionable. Afterall, they don't (as 
far as I am aware) have a question and 
answer hotline to the Man upstairs — it 
would make things much easier if they did. 
And their conclusions are often no better 
than those that anyone else would make. 

As for me, I think that people should be 
allowed to wear whatever they choose. 
Which is, by the way, why I chose to come 
to CLU, which is, as everyone knows, a 
liberal campus where freedom of choice 
and responsibility of the student are not 
only allowed but encouraged (right?). 

Put professors back in college classrooms 


Today's university students seem to be a 
forbearing, forgiving lot. Subject to callous 
exploitation and victims of one of the big- 
gest rip-offs in America, they are remark- 
ably silent And perhaps for good reason, 
for if they speak out and protest, they are all 
too vulnerable to retaliation from faculty 
and administrators. 

The victims of the rip-off are the under- 
graduates, especially freshman or sopho- 
mores, the ones who are often taught and 
graded by other students — teaching assis- 
tants as they are euphemistically called. In 
a variation of the old bait-and-switch game, 
the universities entice potential students 
and their parents with tales of exceptional 
teaching by erudite and sometimes world- 
renowned professors. But when the checks 
are written for $5,000, $10,000, or some- 
times over $20,000 for a year's education, 
and the students are safely enrolled, the 
reality they find in the classroom is not 
exactly what the catalog describes. 

These hopeful, expectant young men and 
women all too often find not a professor 
standing in front of them but a graduate 
student (sometimes an undergraduate stu- 
dent) . While these pseudo-professors rarely 
lecture in the large halls, they often lead the 
smaller class discussions where the real 
teaching should occur. They grade exami- 
nations and courses; they even counsel 
students about some of the most important 
choices in their lives. Is this a university 

education? Is this what students and parents 
pay tens of thousands of dollars for? Is this 
why students studied so hard — to be taught 
and counseled and graded by men and women 
who have not yet earned their degrees, who 
are not qualified enough to be hired by the 
university as a professor? 

The consequences are serious. Undergradu- 
ates are cheated of the quality education they 
have bought and paid for. Grades lose much 
of their meaning, for no one cares very much 
for one student's view of another, and this 
may be one factor in the rampant grade 
inflation that makes a mockery of every one ' s 
grades. The bottom line is a cheapened de- 
gree. As long as few people catch on to the 
fact that university students are taught and 
graded to a significant extent by other stu- 
dents, and that high grades are common- 
place, the value of the degree will go up. But 
as the word spreads, and it will, the value of
